The Variegated Fallopia was a Real Gem Mary Found at our Local landscape Store.

     The fallopia works well in the shade. In the spring it will pop its head out of the ground and has light, almost white leaves. But as the summer progresses the leaves begin to turn green and white. In late summer the plant will be the star of your landscape design as the variegation draws eyes to it's beauty.

It becomes a terrific change of pace from all the green normally found in the garden.     The Fallopia is a nice representation of the term variegated, where the foliage (leaves) has a color that is not green. The leaves might have stripes, blotches or unique marks that stand out from the green that is in the leaves.

The Variegated Fallopia is also known as Fallopia japonica (variegatum) or Japanese Knotwood. It is listed with the vine family and grows by rhizomes under the ground. Some people claim the Variegated Fallopia is an invasive species and once it takes root in your garden it will take over the yard, so be careful with this perennial.
