|'Variegata' is of course a variegated cultivar with pale-yellow to bright-yellow striations on the leaves. As is nearly always the case, variegated cultivars are less hardy and dependable than their monochromatic relatives. This evergreen tree has a broadly conical growth habit. Leaves are dark green, leathery, glossy, broadly ovate, to 8 in. long with rust, hairy undersides. Large fragrant flowers are cup-shaped and creamy white with 9-10 petals up to 10 in. across.
