Foliar variegation can provide an interesting and visually appealing contrast to standard "all-green" cultivars. In this case, S. saxorum has spontaneously sported to a variegated form. Growers must be careful to prevent the all-green shoots from taking over the plant -- they will be more vigorous than those stems that do not have a full complement of chlorophyll.
