I've grown Cameo before and seen it in a friends garden. It is typically a green centered leaf with a medium white margin. A few days ago I saw plants labeled Cameo which had the foliage color that I am familiar with on the exterior of the plants. but most of the newer leaves were very different, mostly white with a smaller irregular green center. I found this pattern very attractive. I wonder if it is a sport? The pictures on the data base are all the familiar patter except one which resembles my plant.

That looks like it could well be a sport. But with that much white, I bet it will grow slowly. At least my original 'Pandora's Box' got smaller and smaller until it disappeared last winter. It had far less green than the PB divisions I've seen lately. And my 'Cherish' is going to do the same some year. But let's hope yours continues to grow well.
