I just picked this up today after seeing it at my local nursery this past week. The one I saw last week had little white flowers on it but when I went back today those ones were sold. Anyways, some details of the plant are its very small, it appears woody, and it has small green variegated leaves. It was also sold around other ivy type plants but the lady at the sales counter didn't think it was an ivy. Any help is greatly appreciated!

Thank you very much! I looked at other pictures on this site of the plant Serissa and on the web and it looks exactly like what I have!

Yes it is! I purchased it after I had seen the small, attractive flowers and because I liked how it looks like a mini tree. I read that it propagates easily in both water and sand and I may try that. The only downside I've seen so far is it is fussy with moving the plant and it smells when you cut it.
