    Here are three variegated house plants that you may have never heard about.

    The first one is actually a type of Ficus. It's our Triangle Ficus bush, and as you can see, the leaves are very triangular shaped, but my favorite part is the detail on the leaves. It's almost this two-tone, painted green look, and then it's surrounded by a very pale green, almost yellow, and all the leaves look like that even when they're younger leaves. And this one can grow up to be more of a floral plant, as well, and not so much of a bush form, but this one is quite young at the moment.

    And the middle is our Rattlesnake Plant. This one's just so cool, it's unlike variegated plants - you have a distinct pattern to the leaves, and they kind of keep this wavy texture to them, too. But I love the pop of color. It's this deep maroon purple on the back. So, this would look great in a nice wide planter, kind of more compact, but this one can get quite large, as well, for a statement piece.

    And then finally, we have our Chinese Evergreen Plant. It has more of the speckled variegation on the leaves, and this one stands more upright, so if you have a nice deep container that you want a nice upward growth, this would be a perfect option.

    If you do have pets, I would recommend the Rattlesnake Plant, as it is pet friendly out of these three.

    These are three great variegated house plant options, but of course we have more to choose from at FastGrowingTrees.com.
