This young tree has appeared in my camellia pot. Any idea what it is?

    To have reached that size quickly. I suspect it is one of the weedy willows.
    Salix sp.
    Perthshire. SCOTLAND .

    Agree, most likely Salix caprea (Goat willow) which I'm forever weeding out of my blueberry pots.
    A trowel in the hand is worth a thousand lost under a bush.

    Pussy Willow perhaps

    Goat Willow, now it’s that big you’ll have no option but to tip everything out of the pot and try to separate its roots from the camellia.
    Gardening on the wild, windy west side of Dartmoor.
