Mystery Seedling in my garden

Posted by retnavythom z10 CA (My Page) on

I was wondering if anyone could help me identify a plant that appeared in my garden.

I first noticed it with two heart shaped leaves in a reddish green color (almost a maroon or burgundy color) and the stem was a very bright pinkish red. The leaves are about the size of a quarter or a little larger.

They were growing in a place that was inopportune so I plucked them out and transplanted them. I did not really expect them to grow due to the way I transplanted them but all three seem to be doing fine and getting second/true leaves.

I do not have anything in my garden that looks like these plants.

I may just be a weed but it still seems interesting so I thought I would ask.

Just a guess...could it be a castor bean seedling?
