I purchased one from Paul and love it.  The American ume  :).  I'll post photos once I put it in a container he made next year.

That was my next question, is if anyone might have one to sell. Are they pretty much the same hardiness as ume Owen?

From what I understand, they occur from Maine to central Florida.  Paul has a number of nice ones but I'll leave that to him.  Schley's Bonsai in DeLand, Fl has some 3 gallons available.  I'm sure there are more but I've seen theirs.

Very interesting, would love to see your tree Owen, or Paul's.  Not sure exactly who Paul is.

I think he's referring to Paul Katich, a wonderful potter, bonsai artist, and a member here.

Ericameria nauseosa, otherwise known as rabbit brush.

Hi Yenling,
there are a couple of flowering trees native to California that could work:
Manzanita - lots of varietals that you can choose from based on your very specific area - touchy to root pruning if I recall from limited past experience.
Califonia redbud - Cercis Canadensis - might bloom a little later in spring..gorgeous flowers on bare wood...you can see lots of them growing around Lake Berryessa.
also another couple USA natives could be:
American persimmon - Dyospyros Virginiana   not sure of history growing them in California  also might be late blooming
Texas Ebony - Ebenopsis ebano   if you live in a very dry part of California this could do well -

Hope the above ideas help in your quest.

I believe GregB (Brenden?) has done work with Manzanita and may've figured them out.
