Here is a picture of some clematis I have rooting in water. Note the small, green leaves. Those are new. And also, you can see the new leaves forming on the other shoots.

Debbb:
My clematis cuttings that I rooted in water, I took last June, almost one year ago, and now they are in pots, all eight of them, and doing very nicely. I will post pictures when I can. Don't give up. It will take at least 4-6 months for the cuttings to root.

Debbb - why dont you just try rooting clematis with rooting powder - I tried it last spring/summer and had no problem at all. I just took a fairly woody piece and scraped off a small amount of the wood with my finger nail - dipped it in rooting horomone and pooked a hole in the dirt and added the clematis stem - rooting horomone intact - firmed the dirt and watered. I had pretty good luck doing it this way and it took a few months for it to take also - but just make sure you give it a fair amount of water. In other words keep it moist but not soaked. Try a few different stages of the clematis - in other words a fairly woody piece and maybe a younger piece and see which one works for you. here is a link to propagation of clematis. http://members.home.nl/jvanacquoij/prop.html
and try this too

RE: re Growing Clematis in Water

I apologize for the double post - I came back to the computer and I thought I had forgotten to post this - I didnt think even if I made a mistake it would post again??? As I have in the past tried to add something to posts before and it notes that you have to change the subject line to post - just like I had to here to add my apology (I had to add the re in the subject line. So I have no idea what happened - again I apologize. Golden
