I have a similar one. Don't know the name as I was given a plant without a label. It seems to behave in just the same way as singles do. 

Not seen a variegated one. Can you post a picture, please?

 

Is this??????? (Potatoes)

No, it's not blight. I'm not so sure about magnesium deficiency either. More likely lack of water and/or the plants starting to die back naturally as the tubers become ready to harvest.

I can see and enlarge your picture too. Are those mixed salad leaves in the trough on the path?

I start nearly all my veggies in cells - there's salad leaves, squash, leeks. There are begonias and some trailing plants for my two huge baskets, orach, opium and californian poppies, love lies bleeding, Bells of Ireland, asters, wild flowers to go into my tiny meadow ...

I took that after I'd planted out a lot of things! 

I'm a bit of a seed hoarder and this year (after a few subtle hints from my husband) decided to use some of it up instead of just buying more.

Ten year old Godetia seeds gave almost 100% germination and produced sturdy plants (it was an unopened pack) but some others were completely dead.

verbena bonariensis

The verbena do seem to start very slowly even in a good year until they suddenly take off!
