Variegated privets are grafted and are not invaders. They make excellent cut foliage for flower arrangements. The leaves of L. lucidum ‘Tricolor’ have a broad marginal band of white; new growth is tinged pink. L. lucidum ‘Excelsum Superbum’ (3 x 5m), one of the best large-leafed, variegated foliage plants, retains its beautiful creamy-white and green colouring throughout the year. It is a vigorous grower.
