Have interesting variegation but the variegation tend to be on the unstable side or drowned out by the flowering stalks and most of the variegation is where the bigher leaves are - near the ground and solid greens tend to out compete the variegation types by seedlings - rating this a neutral Seem to do best in partial shade with some direct sun.
