Can I make lemonade from this lemon?? pics

I was doing some Spring trimming and in error, I cut this piece of Sweet Autumn Clematis. See pic 1

I'm hoping to "make lemonade" from my error and dig a hole and place these little leafed out nodules in it and hope they'll sprout roots. See pic 2


Am I totally wrong? Is there any hope for growing a new plant from my mistake?

Doesn't hurt to try. I planted a Montana at one end of a fence a few years ago and pruned it back as I always do a newly planted clematis. I was wishing I had one on the other end of the fence and on a whim I stuck the cutting in the ground at the other end of the fence and it grew. I don't know the odds, but it can happen.
