Strange tree 2
Description:

This tree started growing in my vegitable garden in early September, after we had cleared away the remnants of a salad crop and 3 lines of broad beans. It has grown to nearly 5 feet since and is still in leaf and sontinues to grow, although some leaves/foliage has fallen. It has attractive variagated leaves on long frond like branches and is quite a pleasant plant/tree to look at. But, with the speed of growth it could take over garden and home within 12 months, unless I dig it up and plant it elsewhere, or simply get rid of it. But what is it and where did it come from?
