Snow Dragon Hardy Citrus. This variegated "Flying Dragon" which I have christened as 'Snow Dragon' is an incredible collector plant. We graft it onto seedlings of 'Flying Dragon.' It is quite unique in that the new growth comes out totally white, both stems and leaves. Then as the wood begins to harden off, the stems gradually turn green. Its leaves may be totally white or have a green center with a broad white margin. We have yet to see it flower and fruit, so we can't speak for what the fruit might look like. Most citrus come true from seed, so it will be fascinating to see if the variegation is carried over into its seedlings. We have left it outside in a container all winter with no protection and there was no damage whatsoever down to the mid teens. Since these are grafted plants, one needs to watch for all green suckers which will come from the understock. Just remove them with a pair of pruning shears as close to the trunk as possible. As the plant becomes older, sprouting from the understock will cease.
