This is supposed to be Ivory Queen (purchased from reputable grower). All the specimens looked like this. Will these leaves eventually develop more white or is this guy starting to revert?

The newest leaf looks proper, so that is promising, I think... Thanks all!

I saw one solid leaf on one of my Ivory Queens today. Usually if a plant reverts to solid, it stays solid. But your plant looks like it's got a lot of "misting" in the leaves. It's not really a solid blue, so it may look more like Ivory Queen as the season progresses. With any luck, you may have a nice sport!

Thanks, that is reassuring!

I should note it was just purchased this season. Fingers crossed it does color up as the season progresses! Crossing Fingers!

Mine is in dappled shade under a large maple, so I hope that is enough sun to get that nice white center.
