Piper nigrum variegata

Piper nigrum variegata is a variegated variety of Piper nigrum L. which is a scandent herb that grows to a height or length of 10 m or more. Once the main stem is established it grows many side shoots to create a bushy column. The plants form short roots, called adventitious roots, which connect to surrounding supports. Leaves are almond-shaped, tapering towards the tip, dark green and shiny above, paler green below, arranged alternately on the stems. This variegated variety shows splashes and spots of white on the otherwise green foliage.

Genus name: Latin piper, from Ancient Greek πέπερι (péperi, “pepper”), from Sanskrit पिप्पलि (pippali, “Piper longum”).
