Thanks for your response.  I probably should have given more detail, but
didn't know what detail would be needed.  

I cut the small tree down last year, and this year there were several
shoots growing from beneath the soil level around it, the variegated one
being one of those.  I have removed all the green shoots, so the only
one remaining is the variegated one, and it is already straight upright. 

It is possible it is a new seedling growing right next to the old
(young) tree, but I think it is attached.  Didn't want to jeopardize it
by handling it too much until I found out what to do.
