    It sure looks like my variegated hydrangea, but mine is in part shade and is a lot bigger and blooms. Is this plant in full sun? You may want to move to to a partially shady location.

    I was a Lowe’s today and looked at the variegated hydrangea’s and this is not one. Close but not that close. It is in shade 1/2 of day and sun 1/2 of day. It gets the morning light and afternoon shade.

    I am guessing variegated box elder. Probably coming up off a large underground root from a nearby tree, or from a tree previously cut down. It has the look of tree sprouts.

    No, I bought it about 3 years ago and it has been planted in my front flower bed this whole time. It never blooms, it totally goes away in the fall and come back in the spring and stays about 2-3 feet tall. Love this plant.

    I agree. It is variegated hydrangea.
