Unknown Marginal Identification?

Posted by nosambos 5b (My Page) on

This plant volunteered next to my pond. It has three separate growing stems. It is too small to tell for sure but I think the stems might end up being woody. Right now, it looks like it may have a vining habit. The leaves are compound. The leaflets are odd pinnate. The leaf remains green throughout the season but the stems are red. I thought it might be a Japanese maple but the chance of three seeds ending up next to my pond seems rather remote. Any ideas what it might be?

I don't know what it is, but I do know it's beautiful! If you don't like it, I'll put in my bid for it (but I'm sure you do like it). Lovely leaf form and colour, not to mention it looks great dipping into the pond!

The moss on your rocks is lovely too.
