Propagating clematis from roots
Hi -Another question, I was driving and saw what looks like a clematis ( looks passion flowery -with the purple frill) growing wild on the side of the road. It must have escaped from someone's yard. I fought the urge to jump out in traffic and grab some, but I do plan on swinging back by and clipping some. Do clematis root well? Do they root best in water or in soil? I may be lucky enough to be able to dig a little section up with a spade, but possibly not. Should I clip a piece of the vine that is blooming or an area that has new green leaves or older vine? Any other advice besides to not get myself run over. No worries, BTW, it,a very accessible.
