Q.Why Are my new plants losing their variegated leaves almost suddenly

Zone Se | Jackieb added on July 2, 2012 | Answered

I have several different variegated plants that I only bought and planted this year and it seems that over only the last month they have lost all of their variegated leaves and now are all green. Plants include sage, Buddelia, viburnum, and weigela.

What type of light do these plants receive? A variegated plant usually needs less sunlight and must be placed in an area with filtered bright sunlight. Variegated leaves can burn or lose color if placed in direct sunlight.
