RE: confederate rose

Hey, Cottagegirl. Find someone now who can give you cuttings but wait until frost to collect them. Pot the cuttings in Fall and sit them in a warm, sunny place or under a light. They will be growing and well rooted by Spring. They are like most perennials in that they fit the old adage: first year they sleep, second year they creep and the third year they leap. It will be the third year before you see a beautiful plant. Be sure to get about 6 cuttings so it fills-out quicker. Do you know which variety are you wanting? LMK - Terry
