Nobody has asked the relevant questions so it might just as well be me ;)

1. Do Leshies form families?
2. Is there such a thing as a Half-Leshy?

1. Leshys existed in PF1 as a bodiless spirits that are later convinced to inhabit a body akin to a construct made of plants. No idea if they intend to change much of that backstory or if there's more to it, that's what's in the SRD.
2. Considering whether what I said in 1 is still true, I'd guess a truly mad artificer-botanist might manage to create such a horror.

PF2 Bestiary said:
Leshys are intelligent plant creatures that guard areas of primeval wilderness or earthly power. Originally created by powerful fey, they manifest when a skilled practitioner of primal magic—typically a druid—combines a nature spirit with a body carefully grown from local vegetation. The rites and materials required to create a leshy vary depending on the type of leshy. They are typically given life in an area of great natural significance, such as an arboreal’s grove, a druidic circle, a fairy ring, or a great natural wonder.
So I guess it takes a bit more effort to create a half-Leshy than, say, a half-Elf.

I used a Leshy in one of my campaigns but it was a Genius Loci of a Forest Region that would form its own gigantic body out of the branches and leaves in a forest glade, thus a humanoid in the forest would see the branches stirring and suddenly find themselves inside the Leshy
