Re: invasives

They're self-seeding all over my yard and those of many of my clients. Most seem to have 'Natchez' as a parent. I have a lovely one that's a cross between 'Natchez' and an old watermelon red, for example. I'm waiting to see whether that cross is sterile. (Hope so) Most are just crappy seedlings.

They seem to need moisture to germinate well, but once they've got a bit of wood, they're extremely drought tolerant, as is 'Natchez'.
