Thanks to @Jon for giving us a new Forum specifically for variegated foliage plants!

We're heading out to an early dinner in a couple of minutes to celebrate my nieces 50th birthday but I thought I'd start off the fun with a few variegated foliage photos.

This is something I used to grow but no longer have...variegated Coral Tree (Erythrina). I really loved it, I bought it at the Fairchild Gardens Ramble one year in a 3 gal container for $25. But I lost it and have never seen it again in person. Anyone else have one??

These are a few variegated Colocasias. Yellow Splash, and Black Marble. You have to look kinda close to see the marbling in the black, in this photo.

Gina, I love that Costus amazonicus, the green is so dark and the contrast with the white is striking.
I have never seen or even heard of a variegated Erythrina, yours was beautiful.

Variegated Coral Tree (Erythrina variegata) is one I'd never heard of either. Gina, you need to add your photo to the database, that's a really great shot of those gorgeous leaves!

This Strelitzia reginae 'Mandela's Gold' jumped in my hands when I noticed the one variegated plant in the pot with the normal green leaf plant.
