Neutral coriaceous On Feb 27, 2014, coriaceous from ROSLINDALE, MA wrote:

There are several variegated varieties. All of them revert quickly to the plain-leafed species unless the gardener exerts continual vigilance and digs out reversions as soon as they occur.

Like the species, these thrive to Z2.
