Any chance for an ID or does it need to grow up?? It's in the yard and I don't recall seeing another like it elsewhere on the property.

I wonder if this could be Quercus coccinea...Scarlet Oak. It looks to have the same deeply lobed leaves. Just guessing here...

Another one I found that you might check, that could look similar is the Quercus palustris...Pin Oak

Whether it is or not , if I want it to grow up big and strong it will need to be moved as it is right next to a raised bed. Wonder will it change color come fall

It might, although it does look extremely young!

I had a Eastern Redbud gifted to me much in the same way...Found it in a bed...It's now about 10-12 ft., but has yet to bloom for me. I'm really hoping this next spring I'll see some of those pretty pink flowers. Fingers crossed!

BTW... I'm leaning towards the Red Oak on yours...I don't think the Pin Oak would do so well this far south.

The parent oak should be growing close by. It is usually Blue Jays, squirrels and such that plant them.

The parent is not close by in my yard, but the neighbor up the road seems to have babies too.

leaves don't look right to me for turkey oak

Ginger, as I understand it, oak seedlings can look vastly different from what they will as adults & it's nearly impossible to ID them. Maybe if one had an Oak expert botanist..... but even then, from what I've read, it could be up for grabs. Then too, I've read there are a lot of crosses between the different oaks that just plain happens naturally.

Thanks for the input, Ann. I may just move it elsewhere and see how it develops....too close to the raised bed where it is now.

I agree

I have bunches of seedlings around here but am not even about to try to ID them. Not unless you want a challenge more difficult than the Rubik cube. Hilarious! Hilarious!

From what I read on this site from Univ of Florida, there are 24 species of Oaks in Florida. 10 of them are in the White Oak group and 14 from the Red Oak group (also called the Black Oak group)

http://edis.ifas.ufl.edu/uw292

After your seedling grows a bit more, you may be able to match it to one of the species in the above link.
