I believe Redbud (Cercis canadensis) in West Virginia readily comes in on bare ground if a seed source is close . Some of the best displays are along highways on cut banks. Although the California Redbud is a different species it may favor similar situations.

Re: Manatees, Springs. and some Florida trees
