2QandLearn Menifee, CA (Zone 9a) Which technique works best for propagating the
Violet / Lavendar Trumpet Vine? (Clytostoma callistegioide)?
I've been give some long --but very thin-- branches of it, and understand that summer is the best time to root cuttings from it. . .
How thick must the branches be to root them successfully?
How warm must they be kept?
Is it best to stand them upright, or lay them flat like a ground-cover?
Should I remove 1/2 or more of the leaves, or, cut them in half, or both?
I've read the following webpages, which don't answer my questions:
Violet Trumpet Vine (Clytostoma callistegioides)
- "Propagation: Semi-hardwood cuttings in summer. The cuttings strike easily."
Planting, Care, & Maintenance of Violet Trumpetvine
I tried to root some inside in water, and they didn't wilt, but they didn't root, either! ):
We would like to grow some on our see-thru fence, as it is evergreen, and the road is getting much busier, with more people moving into our neighborhood, and more kids walking to & from school . . . Plus, it will provide some welcome summer shade for our resident (& visiting) wildlife, a cooler micro-climate for some plants, as well as our dog.
Thank You for your help. (:
