Gee, maybe we should cultivate this

On a walk today in a fairly natural area, I came across this oddity in a large patch of Asiatic bittersweet (Celastrus orbiculatus):

Variegated Celastrus

Just a single variegated stem, the only one in the patch, or any other patch at the site. I'm not saying where it was - I've had enough requests for Japanese knotweed cultivars to know better.


A mosaic virus?

Some pictures for comparison are on
