Roots easily, can stand more sun than most variegates because there is no white on leaves. Average to good insect resistance.
Flowers heavily and often with wonderful wafting fragrance.
Takes pollen readily, seed pods are also variegated green with dark green vertical stripes.
Seeds are viable, with chlorophyll, but it is unknown at the time of this writing if it will pass on variegation characteristics.
