variegated Lonicera maackii

I have spent a lifetime searching for wild mutations in plants and birds. My latest discovery was a wild honeysuckle (Lonicera maackii) with a bud mutation to variegated. It appears to be a chimera type. It was a rather large plant, so it got severely pruned in order to compensate for the root loss of digging it out. Has been in my garden for over a year, and did come back variegated this spring.

Anyone know if it's worth the trouble?

My question to you all is this; the plant is mostly normal, green leaved and since these things are not great to keep, I am wondering if it is even worth keeping? I had planned to air layer a branch to get a good plant that was all variegated, but ....? I did a google search and could find no others in existence.
