A variegated selection by Ken Frieling here at the GHW of "False Thistle" with yellow marbled deeply cut leaf margins turning into rich patches of creamy ivory with age. Handsome foliage topped by spires of white bracts stained raspberry pink. A centerpiece in many international conservatories and display gardens since...
Bright white-striped leaves similar to A.g. variegatus--altho considered to be more compact and shorter as matures. An easily grown houseplant, always a star in a terrarium setting, equally happy in a damp area outside in our climate here.
Tall impressive urns of tough leathery leaves brilliantly margined in ivory, gradually offset to form an art nouveau fantasy. Strong growing piece of drama, but needs bright light, especially to produce the soft yellow flowered inflorescence. Major specimen impact in any plant array; a must for lovers of extreme varieg...
Rather uncommon selection of the "Pink Feather Duster" (a description of the dramatic inflorescence). Wurthman's prefered form of the white-banded "Silver Urn." This remarkable beauty will be shipped in moss.
The nearly spineless outcurved erect leaves are broadly striped bright white, wonderfully overlapping to form an upright glossy urn like rosette--beautiful with the blue petaled blossoms tightly packed on a "Bottlebrush" inflorescence; certainly a must in any collection of exceptional variegates. Always sought out by B...
Somewhat compact glaucous foliaged selection of the "Nile Lily" with heads of ivory white flowers emerging from the attractive leathery leaf fans; must reach maturity before blooming.
Very dramatic gold central stripes on each potentially massive leaf; does not flower without nearly free root-run. American Indians use this in native medicine as an antiinflamatory This plant is not always available. It is actually harder to find in the nursery trade currently than the compact variegated white form as...
"Banded Caribbean Agave" Stiff bayonette leaves of bluish-gray liberally margined in creamy white and lined with attractive brown spines; rugged decorative houseplant fast growing with adequate light and moisture. A great plant for the house; a stunning performer on the summer patio. Easily grown as is native to an are...
"Variegated Taro" Elephant ears dramatically splashed creamy to marble white in irregular patterns--no two giant leaves will ever be alike. For the serious collector. Not a reliable winter grower for us (typically retaining only a few winter leaves), but always completely amazing by mid summer. Hard to top for sheer sp...
Beautiful thick stacks of elaborately jewel work "inlaid" leaves. The silver of the dark striated thick leaf centers are quite ornately dotted platinum, each thich gray green leaf also mottled beneath--indicative of its Aloe parent; the whorled hard surfaced upreaching habit suggests the other Astroloba blood. Very bea...
Remarkable "Frosted Peruvian Lily" The elegant clusters of tubular cinnamon flowers are the final over-the-top gesture by this upright stemmed plant with such brilliantly white tipped foliage. The gradually widening clusters of this most showy Andean have proven winter hardy here in Zone 6 with adequate winter mulch. B...
Very congested flattened buns of lovely tiny puckered leaves brightly margined bold white. Incredible Indian cultivar famous for fooling plant show judges who cannot believe this is cousin to the "Calico/ Parrot" tribe! The most successful way to introduce a patch of white in your terrarium or tropical trough. Much use...
Heavily branched stemlets of this "Ocean Froth" plant bear dainty leaves splashed brilliant white. Truly a "White Wonder." Flower inflorescence a froth of white--incredible as house plant, greenhouse showoff, and outdoor summer container accent. (AND: the skirt of Snow White at Disneyworld.)
"Variegated Pineapple" Striking selection of the commercial pineapple with striping of green, white, and pink; small fruit is rose toned. Fabulous in a greenhouse; striking as a windowsill subject; eyecatching in a container composition.

The dramatic "Variegated Smoothleaf Pineapple" Striking selection, possibly the same as 'Ivory Coast,' of the pineapple with striping of green, white, and pink; soft leaved form (unlike the toothed edged 'Fritzmuelleri'), great for the bright window in the house. Fabulous in a greenhouse; striking as a windowsill subje...
Succulent chrystaline embedded surgaces on fleshy leaf pairs strinkingly margined ivory on fleshy cascading stems with showy clusters of rich maroon red flowers; "The Giant Sun Rose" needs full light, adequate light, and constant warmth to reach its full potential.
"Moondrop Schefflera" Very petite habit: dwarf erect trunks heavy with small waxy fingered wheelspoke leaves irregularly margined in very pure bright white. Most petite of the ones we offer; and also the most brightly, purely white variegated. A big hit with the tropical bonsai crowd.
Marvelous "Dwarf Snowbush" with oval green & white "Foliage Flower" leaves on zig-zagging stems. Very lovely miniature form with stronger color contrast (plus pinkish when cool); very sought after for "mame" subject in Asia. This is a plant we originally brought into the country in the late seventies. We have sold it o...
Handsome double flowered "Angel's Trumpet" leaves the viewer rather breathless. Dark pelted foliage distinct. Customers report this to easily produce heavily scented blossoms more reliably than others in a greenhouse setting; branches easily; seems to respond well to the restriction of containers. This hard working hyb...
"White Angel's Trumpet" Large white dangling flowers with heady nocturnal fragrance are produced with great abandon from vigorous elegantly branched stems--considered the most elegant of the tribe and most likely to get its photo in a book. Possibly versicolor arborea.
Compact statured "Variegated Angel's Trumpet with foot long somewhat upturned clotted creamy white belled trumpets repeating the stunning white margins of the downy somewhat pleated leaves. Easiest to flower of the variegated clones we offer.
Spectacular spiderwort with whorls of foot-long ivory-white striped leaves with reddish edges on bamboo-like striated stalks topped by white spiderwort blossoms; must have warmth & good light. Most definitely not a houseplant. In European trade usually offered as Dichorisandra albo-lineata, while some authorities now c...

"Variegated Natal Plum" Coin-size waxy leaves with brilliant creamy white margins on compactly growing shrub; pinwheel fl pure white. One of the best houseplants with white variegation covered by a wax surface sufficient to prevent burning in a low humidity environment. Very slow growing. Very desirable.
An upright shrub from Capri with deeply dissected snowflake "Dusty Miller" leaves completely covered by a rich felted tomentose silver--which filigreed leaves completely hide the wooly white woody stems (repeat three times, very quickly). If wintered over, expect cute clusters of early rosy violet, fluffy, rayed flower...

"False Lily Turf" Marvelous tufts of small arching blades margined in ivory white; good in low light; from Gabon. "Pongol" has become a great favorite with terrarium fanciers as it maintains its petite tightly clumping tuffet outline to provide a welcome white banded foil to flashier companions. This belongs in the sho...
"White Spider" Unusual low succulent flat outstretched leaves margined ivory; odd cultivar of remarkable endurance. Far more succulent rubbery foliage with more lateral growth habit than the rest of the tribe: thus, emerging as the best form to plant out in bedding, urns, windowboxes, and so on as survives (and even pe...
Breathtaking "Variegated Elephant Ear" with big arrowhead leaves lavishly splashed with creamy gray and mottled with white--a snowstorm of confettii. To flourish needs boggish conditions with full light and warm temps.
Tom Winn's selection of a wide banded clone--the succulent spiraled leaves are more striped than margined.
NOTE! For a limited time, we are offering this wonderful plant at a reduced Price due to an unusually good crop of offsets in our recent hot summers--global warming helping your budget! "Striped Bengal Lily" Large fleshy sword-like leaves are most liberally streaked white & cream; fragrant clusters of waxy white blosso...
Unidentified stoloniferous species with erect arched leaves striped and margined with brilliant white. Slim wands hold nodding lilac blossoms. Striking specimen for full light. Does not closely clump like D. caerulea (perhaps D. tasmanica?). Does well as an indoor house plant.
