Last year I dug it up while on vacation staying at a Hotel, not sure if it was from seed or roots of nearby plant made new one, it had two tiny leaves and was as wide as a US silver dollar. Leaves were green with white in middle. This year it sprouted and leaves were various shades of greens and whites, totally different look than last year. (first photo).
Now later on in the year I repotted it in excellent soil and its been in full sun instead of part sun part shade, variegation completely disappeared and I got a bloom photo. Plant is rather small, mabye a foot wide, is this a small variety as well or just a young plant?

It looks like Mediovariegata undulata.
The green plant is a mutation.

Throw it away.

Both photos are of the same plant first in spring second in summer.

Says here it turns all green in summer, so, seems the Id is right, but my plant is not a mutation its normal. http://www.canningperennials.c...

Mediovariegata undulata should properly be called simply 'Undulata'. Everything else is usually a made-up nursery name. The solid green form is 'Erromena'. And if the white in the middle is getting narrower than 1/3 of the leaf it is 'Undulata Univittata'.
