Variegation
Variegation Variegation is the appearance of differently coloured zones in the leaves, and sometimes the stems, of plants. This may be due to a number of causes. Some variegation is attractive and ornamental, and gardeners tend to preserve these. The term is also sometimes used to refer to colour zonation in flowers.

Acacia
Americas. Australian species are often called wattles. The small flowers are arranged in rounded or elongated clusters. The leaves are compound pinnate in general (see fig.). In some instances, however, more especially in the Australian species, the leaflets are suppressed and the leaf-stalks become vertically flattened, and serve the purpose of leaves. The vertical position protects the structure from the intense sunlight, as with their edges towards the sky and earth they do not intercept light so fully as ordinary horizontally placed leaves. Various species yield gum. True gum arabic is the product of Acacia senegal, abundant in both east and

Bromeliaceae
Bromeliaceae Scientific classification Kingdom: Plantae Division: Magnoliophyta Class: Liliopsida Order: Bromeliales Family: Bromeliaceae Bromeliads include epiphytes, such as Spanish moss, and ground plants, such as the pineapple. Many bromeliads have a "cup" formed by their tightly-overlapping leaves, in which they store water. However, the family is diverse enough to include the cup-type epiphytes, grey-leaved Tillandsias (which gather water only from leaf structures called trichomes), and even a large number of desert-dwelling
