In Thailand nowadays it's becoming as though any plant you care to think of is also available variegated.  Plumerias, and a whole range of unlikely ornamentals and even fruit trees can now be had with variegation.

I believe Thailand has a facility for irradiation that induces

variegation. I have also heard that tissue culture can induce

variegation, like, for example, some of the variegated bananas that

has been coming out.
