    I want to add that if this does not have a woody stem, with the “tuberous root” might be poke weed (Phytolacca decandra)? Check out the included link below for more information. Best wishes!

    It’s hard to tell at this stage. I’m unable to see their leaf buds details and could only speculate for now. If these are woody type of plants, to my eyes these leaves look like a handful species. Some of these are the American persimmon (Diospyros virginia), a type of tupelo (Nyssa, possible N. sylvatica? ), Carolina Laurelcherry (Prunus caroliniana), sourwood (Oxydendrum arboreum) etc… I can’t see any terminal buds of the Tupelo and leaning toward the American persimmon (?). This only a pure speculation. Perhaps you could resubmit with photo of the “tuberous” roots. The other suggestion is to let one specimen grows more mature give us an update. For now check out these links for images of some these species from these included links. Copy & paste to open the sites. Best wishes!
