I found this little one growing in the roots of a juniper tree in a park near my house. I took it out because i liked the leaf shaping, and i thought it was a type of oak seedling, but i couldnt find anything to match it with, even outside of oaks. As you can or cannot see, it does have bark on its stem. I live in central oklahoma.

I think mullberry. Ficus seedlings tend to have straight stems..

It's hard to tell how big the leaves are. Perhaps one of the Ribes species.

mulberry ...could be, except the leaf margins do not look right (not saw tooth enough) .... to cancel out fig ....break off one of the least desirable leaves by the stalk at the trunk ....wait a few minutes ...is there a white milky substance dripping out of the stem ??

if so ...fig

if not, then I would say mulberry ....

Growing out of the roots of a Juniper - sounds like a bird deposited seed which sprouted.

Nikoniko could take some additional pictures of that plant from some different directions, focusing closeup especially along the stem - where buds are/were.

I'm not convinced it is any of the species mentioned so far. Look for a bud that hasn't opened, and determine which species looks like THAT.
