Wako White Variegated Trumpet Vine. This is an example of another one of our natives which was sent abroad and came back completely transformed. We found this selection is a small rare plant nursery in Japan. This incredibly variegated Trumpet Creeper has brilliant orange-red flowers like our native species, but the foliage is a heavily speckled white. When the new growth emerges, it is more like white speckled with green. One of the best characteristics of this selection is that it is not nearly so vigorous as the species, which makes it a plus.
