Does anyone know what this is as I'd like to look it up before I plant it? I was told it has pink flower in early spring. Thanks.

Hi Ruby

not great clarity on the leaf but to me it looks like Azara microphylla variegata. could also be a variegated myrtle (glanleam gold) but your leaf looks smaller, usually small yellow flowers on the Azara in early spring.

Good suggestion Honey Monster.
Azara microphylla variegata...strong contender.

Thank you both. I wasn't getting anywhere feeding descriptions into Google.
