Orido Nishiki totally green - boo-hoo
I purchased a beautiful, totally variegated 2 yr. old Orido Nishiki in spring 2006 from World Plants.
Alas, the lengthy 20-some degree cold snap of spring 2007 killed all the first leaves, and the re-sprouted leaves were totally green. It's grown to 2 1/2 feet, & looks healthy; but again this spring, all the leaves are totally green. Is there any way to bring back the variegation? I'm guessing not.
Anyway, if not, are there any similarly variegated J.M.s that are not prone to this kind of reverting? We often have cold snaps in April, tho not as bad as 2006's. Would protection have prevented this in 2006? if so, what kind is best? Sue
