Viburnum rhytidophyllum ‘Variegata’
I found one of these at a small local nursery about 25 years ago. I still have it but nearly gave up when it was in the process of reverting to green, which it does too easily. However I remedied this by cutting out the all green shoots ruthlessly. This did the trick and also had the effect of making a nicely shaped shrub which no longer tends to revert so much, though I have to keep an eye on it for this reason. Anyway one of my favourites in the garden now. Curiously small white butterflies often visit the yellow leaves but soon realise their mistake and fly away.
yeah it’s a terrible reverter indeed. This particular plant was mostly green save these few branches that I photographed. Novelty, but worth it if you go geeky for variegation! (like me)
