Maybe Coleus?

It does resemble Coleus; we have many photos in the database for comparison: https://garden.org/plants/sear...

Agree with Paul2032, Sure look like lamium or Lamiastrum galeobdolon variegatum.
Soon the ID will be more clear, Lamium or Lamiastrum are really quick grower, scrambling over, but coleus behave better, and then the flower..

Good eye @Paul2032, it does have a strong resemblance to Lamium, especially the new center growth. Lots for comparison in the database: https://garden.org/plants/brow...

For comparison: Golden Dead Nettle (Lamium galeobdolon 'Variegatum')

How about Lamiastrum galeobdolon subsp. argentatum?

Not just yet, it'll come back. It's common in lamium/lamiastrum, or in many plants... just be patient, nature has lots of surprises, makes gardening even more exciting.
