A nice little surprise

I've been taking cuttings off of my clematis alpina 'Willy' for about 3 years now, and have never had one bloom in the house before.

It must have heard me whining about how much longer before spring gets here. :0)

So that's what a clematis cutting looks like when it's not been murdered...

Nice!

(p.s. that's a tiny Willy you got there Laurie hee hee hee)

I just wish I had more luck, or more like, any luck with other varieties of clematis cuttings. :(

I've already got two of this clematis in my yard Konrad, so this guy will hopefully be sold at my yard sale this spring. This is the third winter that I've successfully grown cuttings from 'Willy', so most of my gardening friends and family already have one. ;^)
