I have a red flowered geranium whose foliage right down to soil level is white/cream. It is about to flower and looks like the flowers are coming through the normal red colour. It is in the middle of a pot of other 'normal' geraniums. Anyone know why this has happened? Should I take cuttings and will it grow white or revert to green?

I would be very surprised if the cuttings were successful as they cannot manufacture chlorophyll without the green tint.

Is the white-leaved plant as vigorous as the green ones? Are the leaves as big and numerous?

Plants sometimes produce a white shoot or two but they need green leaves in order to thrive.

I've taken three cuttings but you are probably right. It's not as vigorous and the leaves aren't huge though there are quite a few. The stem has a pink tige.

You're right waterbutts. All the cuttings are dead!

C'est la vie.
