gardening info-Silene dioica or is it?

Silene dioica (Red Campion) shown here in a very unusual form with variagated leaves,compare it with usual coloured plant.The second part of Red Campions botanical name is dioica meaning "two houses"and refers to the fact that each Red Campion plant has flowers of one sex only,so that two plants are needed to make seed.There isn't another variagated plant on site at the NWC so botanists,people in the know enlighten me.
