Arabis caucasica


By Siris

Arabis caucasica (Arabis alpina caucasica)

This Arabis started life as A. caucasica variegata but has reverted over the years to plain green leaves. I did however take variegated cuttings so I now have one like the original, but it's not in flower.

A lovely show its given do you think cutting it back would of retained the variegated foliage as I let a purple flowered varigated leaf grow and new growth came plain no variation.

3pb, you need to cut out just reverted leaves/branches on variegated plants/shrubs or they will return to their natural form.
