Yes, Chicky. One of my jobs at the Botanic Garden where I was a volunteer gardener for six years was to weed out the seedlings round the acers of which there were hundreds. I asked if I could take a few home as they were just being put in the compost and was given permission. all five grew. I had chosen ones which seemed to have different leaves but the results have been beyond my expectations.
