Variegated sparkleberry

First one I've seen variegated. They are kind of like gritty blueberries. They runner out so there is a 'clonal' grouping of these.

Waiting to see a persimmon or paw paw like this haha. Have you seen any like this? Ive been noticing a few other native species mostly weeds lately with that same yellow/green variegation. Could something be to this??

Nice find. I sense that there might be some sparkleberry propagation in your future. ;D

I know with Camelias it can be due to a viral infection. It does not typically harm the plant much, but it does lend an interesting effect.

very cool. I've got a sparkleberry growing on the lot next to me that is over 20ft tall.  It's a tree!

I remember seeing the picture. That may be worth propagating as a root stock. It looked like it was mostly a single trunk without many toot suckers.

Someone did find a varigated persimmon

Some pawpaw seeds has been popping up with white leaves people get

I have not see anyone graft them onto a tree to try to save the white leaves
people also may not update (but I know some of these not getting chlorophyll have died)

(edit again yours looks stable )

I did read some on why variegation happens ..
