This suddenly appeared from under one of my azaleas. Anyone know what it might be?

thanks, Stefan! I have been a bit flummoxed, as it is unlike the kind of weed that usually grows in my yard. Shrug!

I think you might have hit the nail on the head, Kent! I was not even thinking 'tree', but I can see it now that you've pointed it out! Thank You!

well, guess I'll need to yank it. Sighing! And here I was hoping for some exotic plant... Big Grin

LOL, it looks like we both had the same tree identified! The thread "Laurel Oak (Quercus hemisphaerica)" in Plant ID forum

LOL, either Willow Oak or Laurel Oak ... I still can't decide for sure which mine is. I keep leaning more towards Laurel Oak because it seems everything I read says that type grows around this part of Florida whereas the Willow Oak is much farther northwest in the state.

This is what the willow oak looks like in the spring when it starts to leaf out.
