Iv put the little guy in straight vermiculite with others rooting. He looks great , no wilting yet. Seems strong so far.
Im assuming Im wrong about what it is. Again I found it under the bush is my only reasoning to hoping it could be the Bush. Im gonna google a pic of the plant Im referring to just to make sure we're all on the same page and that Im correct about rather its called a tree or a bush.... I'm unsure ATM.
Ok I found its Tree,bush,Shrubs. . Difference all the same in this name of plant. Idk if thats said correctly but for my point. I believe we understand.
So who here is good enough to guess what this weed is?? Thats me challenging all of you so I get my answer. Lol and add some lame humor.
Thanks again everyone for all your help.
Ps. I have about 5 more questions in the next day or so I plan to post. Some I've been procrastinating about for awhile. So if your interested in helping please check back soon... ty ty ty

It doesn't look like any Maple I've ever seen, but more resembles Holly (Ilex sp.) For comparison, check out this one: American Holly (Ilex opaca)

Too late now but its not a maple. Holly seems reasonable.

I am not familiar with non tropical plant, but the holy I saw always with alternate leaves, yours (I can't see clear, but it) could be opposite. (If I could ask for more clear pictures from side, to see leaves arrangement), also I'm not aware whether holly could have opposite leaves at young plants. The plant that I have seen with this leaf morphology would be Osmanthus heterophyllus... I guess.

edited: after few looking back perhaps my eyes got me wrong, it is alternate I thingk, so please ignore my comment.

Yes plantladylin, I thought the same ofcourse but I'm unsure where holly would even have came from either. Although most my neighbors do alot of Gardening have pretty nice yards, bushes ect, maybe there some around. .
Now im more curious! !! Could it really be holley? Lol I just find that amusing.

Ok I'm back from the front yard. I tok pic of about everything...
Lets see what we think now. Ps I found 3 or 4 more of this plant growing either under the Japanese mable or within inches of it and didnt find any more in that area period. Which is odd because we know its not the bush. It just got trimmed so I'm guessing its something that kept getting blown under the bush. It was touching the ground almost all the way around the bush.. thats why they chose to cut it so short. Or at least i feel its so short . Anyways here is more evidence. . Lol

They look like holly seedlings to me, too. I suspect that a bird ate holly berries, flew to your yard, and then perched in your bush and pooped-out the seeds.
