I got this in a group co-op...was supposed to be a clematis which it obviously isn't. I don't know what it is so I don't know were to plant it, or even if I want too Shrug!

It's weird the way its growing. It came as a dried up clump that looked like a goner...the little leaves just started to shoot out.
The lady that ran the co-op has no idea...said she didn't sell anything variegated Confused

I was thinking Plectranthus too, but it shouldn't have survived the winter outdoors

It does look like that...my thinking was the same, it wouldn't have survived...it's definitely growing like a perennial...

Maybe Glechoma hederacea Variegata? The dried up grassy part that it is growing from has me stumped.

I don't think the leaves are rounded enough to be Glechoma. Maybe there's more than one plant in the pot? Or maybe it was kept in some kind of sheltered situation over winter.

Definitely only one plant. Don't know how it was kept...co-op lady says she didn't sell any variegated plants.
