    Hmmmm...this could be a little Magnolia tripetala...maybe. Need more info. Your part of the country? Does your mom live in or near woodlands? Some more details about the plant itself. The photos suggest it is a woody-stemmed plant, leading to my first impression it could be a magnolia sp.

    Looks like some type of Ficus. Perhaps F. heteropoda.
