Beech Hedge leaves


Does anybody know why these leaves are Two different Colours ...please - is it lacking in nutrients ? 

NO they are NOT painted!!  

Is is on a 40ft x 8ft beech hedge that is suffering again this year with white bugs under the leaves.  The rest of the hedge has green Leaves.

    Leaf variegation can occur as a random mutation - chlorophyll is absent from the white areas.

    The mutation may have been triggered by sap-sucking insects or it could just be coincidence.

    I wouldn't imagine that's it's anything to be concerned over.

    Thank you .... The Hedge is indeed suffering from something hence my other post ..... I don't mind the two tone leaves but the bugs are causing mayhem. image
