Variegated horseradish

The first time I ever saw this stunning plant was in my favorite gardening book, The Collectors Garden by Ken Druse. It looks like regular horseradish until after three or four years the leaves explode with a mass of cream leaf with some limited green variegation. Being the plant head that I am, I had to wonder how the plant could survive with such limited chlorophyll in the green parts. But after I got over my OCD, I was determined to find this plant. The only source I found was at Forestfarm nursery in a 1 gallon size. I bought two plants and I am at the beginning of the third year. I know I need some help, but I'm really excited to find four leaves that have a significant piece of variegation (as seen in picture above. I guess I will just have to keep looking at Ken's book until I have my own explosion in the garden. I'll keep you updated.

fake handbag is carried on runways, world wide. Stars like Lauren Conrad, Paris Hilton, Lindsay Lohan and many other hot stars carry the Louis Vuitton Suhali Leather line. Not only do they carry the Suhali leather bags, they also wear Louis Vuitton's leather shoes and their dogs wear dog collars and leashes from this line.
