Using Variegated Plants in the Garden

Gardeners have long valued variegated plants in the garden. The usually lighter coloured variegation is used to lift blocks of solid green foliage in planting schemes. Variegation in plants is due to two quite distinct things. The first and the simplest is pigment variegation, where the non-green parts of the leaf lack chlorophyll. This form of variegation is a mutation, but one often encouraged by plant breeders. The second is structural variegation which creates a visual effect due to the reflection of light from the leaf surface. This happens when an air layer is located just under the epidermis resulting in a white reflection. Here are just a few of my favourite variegated plants and how to use them in your planting scheme.
