I bought this plant today because I'd never seen it before and it was variegated (bonus!). The leaves are super thin and delicate. Does anyone know what it is? Thanks.

Reminds me of Creeping Fig (Ficus pumila 'Variegata')

Hmm ... looking closer at the photo, I wonder if it might be a juvenile form of Snowbush?

Hi Lin - it does indeed look like a creeping fig, but her leaves are much softer. The fig has rough, almost papery leaves, and they're a different shape.

Just read your second post - I think you nailed it!! Hurray! It does look like a snowbush - thanks!

Christine - it's been ID'd. Smiling
