Variegated Amorica (Horseradish)

suzymcq(z6 PA)August 27, 2003


I've been growing this plant for several years and noticed offshoots from several stalks. I potted them up and while I have quite a few, only one exhibits variegation. I faintly recall reading somewhere that the variegation may not show up until plants are mature, so I am wondering if this is indeed true, or if the rarity of variegated offshoots is the reason why the original plant was so expensive. Any assistance or experience is appreciated.

I remember hearing the same thing about this plant--Wow, I got lucky and found the article in the very first place I looked! How often does that happen? Anyway, this is from Fine Gardening, April 2001 pp.85-86--"Armoracia rusticana "Variegata" its youth, this plant is green like the species, but within a year, possibly two, it shows its truly striking colors."
