Unkown! Needs ID. Tiny green leaves, white edge

Montreal, Canada


I need to know the ID of this plant. It's not doing too well, and I need to look up his/her specific care needs. He/she has think branches like a tree, with tiny green leaves with white edges. It is bipennate - one leaf always grows in oppostion of another, identical leaf.

I bought it from Rosemont metro plant/grocery shop a in early September in Montreal.

Any help appreciated! Thanks.

It's a pretty fuzzy pic, have you ruled out Ficus benjamina?

"one leaf always grows in oppostion of another, identical leaf. " Yes but call that , opposite and I think that rules out Ficus.

Does the foliage have a mint smell to it. If so, I'd suspect it to be a Mint Bush Prostanthera ovalifolia http://davesgarden.com/guides/pf/go/63228/
