I had about given up, ready to throw out the rose
cuttings I made after my husband cut through the main
stem to to remove it from the house.
But here it was today,
just as if it knew its fate.
You can see the new growth popping out, in
fact, there are several all up and down the stem.
It was magnificent this year.
We had a great Spring resulting in tremendous growth.
It's a wild climber, going up two stories but unfortunately
climbing the down spout and trying to get
beneath the siding.
The bees love it and it's oh so pretty!
I thought I would try saving it, replanting and
allowing it to grow up one of the trees at the
edge of the woods.
I tried sticking a cutting in a potato but it doesn't
appear to be working, even with rooting hormone.
I put one in straight water. Nice leaves but I can
see they are starting to fail.
This one was cut, dipped in rooting hormone and
planted in an indoor potting soil- Success!
Now let's see if it will continue to grow!
Now, can someone tell me how to keep a misplaced
wisteria root from climbing my front siding?
