Gardeners' Notes:

Neutral coriaceous On Mar 31, 2015, coriaceous from ROSLINDALE, MA wrote:

This is just like the species except in the cream-colored areas in the middle of the leaves.

It often sports to the non-variegated form vegetatively---to keep the variegation in the long term, it's important to cut out the occasional non-variegated shoots as soon as you notice them.

This is the same as S. sieboldii f. variegatum.

It is easy to grow in any ordinary, well-drained location, and tolerates heat, drought and poor soil.

Water sparingly.
