I recently bought a plant called this, but I can't find a botanical name anywhere. It's a tender shrub, with very variegated, oval leaves---green, with almost white and pink. Any suggestions? Wish I could post a pic, but I don't have a digital camera.

I think what you want is the Hawaiian Snow Bush, Breynia disticha.

I think David is right; the snowball doesn't have pink, but the snow bush does.
