I noticed this recently growing in my yard near other Rose of Sharon. I’m wondering if anyone can tell me why these leaves are white and green instead of the usual solid green. Also, am I possibly incorrect about it being Rose of Sharon?

Welcome to the forum @Anissa :) The name of the plant is Hibiscus Syriacus. I think your variegated one might be a variety called ''sugar tip''

Thank you. Sugar Tip was the only thing I could find online with variegated leaves, but I thought these had more of a white color than the yellowish Sugar Tip. I guess I was hoping to hear a “Wow! I’ve never seen that before” response . Thanks for checking it out for me and for the welcome!

Sorry there was no ''wow'' - we used to sell ''blue bird'', and'' woodbridge'' mostly at the nursery in which I worked for many years.
As far as I know this new one is a double pink, and is a sport of ''Lady Stanley'' - It`s other name would be ''America Irene Scott''

Maybe no “wow” but I’ll still have fun watching it grow. And it’s exciting to me because I haven’t had that variety until now. Thanks a bunch for your time and input.

I wonder if the variegated Rose-of-Sharon in the OP ever grew and bloomed. It certainly might be Sugar Tip® Rose-of-Sharon (Hibiscus syriacus 'America Irene Scott') but perhaps it is another variegated form.
It would be odd if a planted cultivar appeared in a garden suddenly without the gardener's knowledge.
