Same leaf and question posted here: http://annieinaustin.blogspot.com/20...ery-plant.html



Here's what they figured out:

What you have there is a mulberry seedling. I'm 100% sure of this. I gather leaves to feed my silkworms, and it's gotten to the point where I can literally ID them driving down the freeway. As they are bird-planted, they tend to spring up in surprising places, often in the middle of beds or hedges, or under other trees.

These spiky leaves usually only last for a couple of seasons, although I have seen them for a few years on established seedling plants. They show up again on large trees when the tree throws out whips of entirely new growth. Those will tend to be more succulent than these juvenile leaves, though.

Look at these images of spiky mulberries:

(note the spiky ones down low, the round ones higher up)

LMAO.

Pretty sure that is an oak and Reds put out weird shaped leaves at the bottom sometimes. I got one putting out giant post oak leaves right now. No points at all on em till you look up.

Mulberry. Juvenile shoots are deeply lobed like that until the stem matures and leaves emerge and form unlobed.

I was leaning towards mullberry myself but it is funny looking, almost like a mullberry and a red oak got it on.
