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.
Never ever had bare patches!
