clematis root at boxstore worth it?
I want to get a clematis started to run up a telephone pole on the edge of my property.
A local boxstore is offering a clematis root for five dollars. It appears that a few have already sprouted, so viability doesn't seem to be an issue.
my question is whether this has a good chance of long term success, or is it worth spending more for an already established vine?
anyone tried growing clematis from a root?
