What is this?

I have been trying to identify this plant/tree that I have growing in my garden for about 3 months now and still cannot figure it out. Pretty sure its a tree. I had fallen over (trunk was about 3 inches thick) then branches started to grow vertically from the fallen trunk. So took a bunch of cuttingings and most are rooted and growing. Best I can describe it is leaf is somewhat heartshaped and twisted with little fingers at the ends and has the color or feel of some sorta japanese maple. No fruit nuts or flowers just the leaves. I added pic in here so maybe someone, anyone can help me.
