Anyone seeing many leaf variegated forms?

I manage a nursery in central Texas and found a nice leaf variegated form of impatien. I have rogued out the green leaf and maintained the varigation for several months now. It is a lilac flower and I am waiting to see if seed will come true. I don't have a pic yet and still am new to doing this kind of photo uploading to the web. I found this forum through a google search and so I read a post from last year about a variegated form but it was more inconsistent and mottled as opposed to a generally clean line around the margin. I, like that person, hadn't seen it before and still don't see it in the trade here anyway and never remember seeing it in my 10 years in Hawaii. Anyone interested in or wanting to share their experiences about this kind of form, I would love to here from you.
Thanks David from Texas
I can send a pic by email in a day or two if anyone wants to see it.

I tried to start some vaigated forms from seeds. I did get some germination but none of the seedlings survived. That doesnt mean yours wont. I crossed variegated with variegated and they were all weak. What is fun is to get sports off variegated plants. I have found a couple like that.
I would like too see a picture of your plant.
