That's a pretty sad looking creature, and more information would be helpful i.e. did it have flowers at one time and what kind, where did this plant come from, and what the hell happened to it....?

But throwing this out as a possibility--variegated leaf hibiscus?



Yep, I think that's what you've got here.

Hi, thank you for your reply.

It looks like a Tom West Fuchsia.
It's definitely not a hibiscus.

This is a definite match... pink in the leaves is a normal occurrence.
