Thank you for insight on using themhydrangeas some are, I have one that is a three color leaf, with a blue flower. There is also a variegated mock orange shrub, (of which I have) and the french lace weiglea (of which I have several) Some of you may know, I do seek out the unusual.
For garden decoration purposes a variegated plant is used for visual interest after the flower is gone, especially in shade gardens. But one has to remember when using the lighter part of the plant does not absorb the sun as much as the darker part of the leaf thus care has to be made for proper placement. I use various variegated ones in my gardens to visually effect areas as I also do wine colored leaves.
Garden placement, to me, is all about complementing and placement.
But, Esther, that's exactly my point. Don't dig them up. Don't put them away! Treat it like an annual. No muss, no fuss!!yep, agree. and I still do not want to fuss with them. the digging up, putting away part.
