"unstable" is precisely the correct word for 'Kwanso.' It is an "unstable sport"--of 'Flore pleno,' I assumeand I was surprised to read above that it had actually been hybridized. I assume that it was indeed a sport. It is true that it requires vigilance to get rid of the reversions to plain green leaves, and $25 seems a lot to pay for a plant that spreads happily in the right conditions. It is definitely the leaves and not the flowers that are the attraction. My bed of 'Kwanso' took a hit just yesterday with some construction, but I'm sure I have extras if someone wants them!

Mine has been extremely unstable. If I were to cut all the green revert, I wouldn't have much of a plant. I paid $25 for this, consider it a waste of money.
edited to change from negative to neutral. Yes, it still seems unstable but as I cut the green leaves, it seems more variegation seems to appear. A bloom also helps.
edited again to change from neutral to positive. Variegation continues to get stronger.
