We found this plant in our rock garden. It’s new this year. The plant is about 3-1/2 feet high. We’re in central New Jersey and cannot find this leaf online for identification. Any idea?

Thank you Jim and Laura for all your efforts to answer my question. I have not been able to find that leaf in all the charts I found online. If and when I get an answer, I will post it. Again, thank you for your help and for this website 🙂

Hi Jim, I thought of papaya too, but I am leaning toward the climate of NJ and mulberry’s map of distribution. However plants have always grow in places that botanist and horticulturists have told us that they couldn’t. So you could be right :).

Not able to see the rest of the tree, I am speculating only here. Your leaf looks like either some type of fig or a juvenile foliage form of white mulberry (Morus alba). But in your climate, fig is unlikely. I am leaning toward maybe white mulberry. I have not able to locate much data on the juvenile variable leaves for white mulberry. Some scant information I found are copy righted. You could Google for: ‘Morus alba’ or if you like, I can e-mail them directly to you. For now the link below shows two different shapes of leaves. http://www.arizonensis.org/sonoran/fieldguide/plantae/morus_alba.html
