Yesterday I posted about my Hydrangea macrophylla ‘Tricolor’. At the moment, it has two leaves that are pure white. As rare as all-white leaves are, I have another plant that currently has some: a variegated leopard plant (Farfugium japonicum ‘Argenteum’).
While it throws an all-white leaf once or twice a year, it’s still a special occasion when it happens. I don’t think I’ve ever had two side by side: one leaf is completely white and the other is 98% white.
Yesterday we had a sprinkle or two—very unusual for late May—and the raindrops added a special touch to the semi-glossy surface of these leathery leaves.
