    One that I have is Sagara nishiki. It has light green outlining the edges of, the dark green leaves.

    My favorite, that I’ve seen thus far, is ‘Milky Way’.

    I have a couple of the ‘Butterfly’ and they are very pretty. Quite slow growing but once they are in the right spot they produce good new growth with bright pink and green variegated leaves. I have also had some great red and gold Autumn colours too. I see them for sale in most decent garden centres so should be quite easy to find.

    Here's one to think about A p wakehurst pink , will give you two lots of colours in the spring then two more colours in the fall see pics included but you need to get it planted in the right spot loves the shade like most variagated trees.

    And it also throws some cool leaf shapes in the spring akin to "ghost cultivars" very unusual. First four pics springtime the rest fall with the last pic it's final colour before dropping.

    Takes a few years to get established then if it likes it's spot sit back and enjoy :) suprises me every year.
