I found it in my flower bed. The leaves are a little curled and some have a dark reddish tinge. It looks pretty and grows super fast. I googled pictures of poison ivy, oak, and sumac and it didn't look like those. It doesn't look like a weed...

It is too small for me to really make out.

You can always email the pix to your county extension office and ask them to ID.

Just Google the name of your county and "extension office."

Like if you life in Apple County, you search for "Apple County extension office."

I second asking your county extension office, or even taking a pic of it to a local greenhouse.

To my less than expert eye it looks like it might be a very young Pokeweed.

I always have things poking up & they turn out to be What I call wild flowers ~looks like a wild flower(or a weed which can look pretty too) to me~but here In ohio would not be a keeper but to u there in Texas it would be.( I was thinking a coneflower at first glance but the leaves look to short. But still might just be cause they seed easily and even a bird could drop a seed & they would start & there is so many different varities of them now day that ya just never know) Just see what it does~!keep us informed I am so curious now!
