I noticed this growing in my chives pot the other day. I don’t really have the heart to yank it out though. I know it’s a maple but I’m not sure what kind. If it’s from the tree in the backyard it seems to be most similar to a Sugar Maple. At first I was thinking it was a Red Maple but the tree turns yellow and light orange in the Fall, not red.
So I think I’m going to keep this little guy and transplant it soon to it’s own little pot. We plan on buying a house within the next 2 years so depending how fast maples grow (I’ll be doing some research on this first) I could just have it in a pot on our balcony and bring it with us when we move!
