It's in a poor spot , so it needs to move if I'm gonna let it grow.
It has simple,lobed leaves that alternate.
The stems and the veins in the leaves are red.
What do yall think it is?

maybe something like a young golden rain tree (Koelreuteria) or similar? the teeth on the leaflets don’t look like much that’s native to your area.

Thanks for all the responses!

I think you guys are right.
The stem is much redder than any of the photos of Koelreutaria paniculata I could find and the redness extends into the veins of the leaves,  but this could just be a variation.
Messy and edible according to Pfaf.
I think it won't transplant well, having sprouted in a crack of the wall.
I can't let it grow so big that its destroys the wall, but the roots are supposedly not aggressive.
Koelreutaria paniculata is hermaphroditic so perhaps it will produce viable seed before it gets too big.

the more-red coloration may just be coming out because the plant is stressed. and i imagine growing out of a wall is reason enough to be stressed…
