Mystery seedling, help me identify it?

BigN_187(9)April 26, 2013

I found the seedling in the photo popping up in an empty flower bed. Looking around my yard, the only thing that looks remotely similar to the seedling is my Chinese Pistachio (Pistachia chinensis) tree. Could that be it? (Sorry if the photo is huge...)

Sorry but it is almost impossible to ID seedlings at that stage. Even if you can narrow down the specific choices it is still guess work.

I can tell you that Chinese Pistachio do not have a tip leaflet on the leaf branch as that appears to have. They develop in sets of two evenly spaced all the way to the tip.

Hm... Interesting.

However, yes, I did come to that conclusion shortly AFTER I submitted my original post. The reason I assume it is some sort of tree or shrub is because of the dark, "wood-looking" stem. The next pair/set of leaves are coming along well, so hopefully I'll have a better photo fairly soon.
