What hardwood cuttings rooted for you? Millie - are you there?

Millie, I want to thank you for the Cornelia cuttings you sent me in the winter and also for the instructions. I just stuck mine right in the ground. 2 out of 5 rooted -- and they are blooming. I'm so amazed.

I also had 1 out of 5 peace cuttings root
1 out of 2 zepherine drouhin

These two are alive, and only have a few leaves on them - but hey they are still living!

Did anyone else have hardwood cuttings survive the winter and root and grow?

I'm curious which roses do best with this method.

RE: What hardwood cuttings rooted for you? Millie - are you there

Maureen, Congratulations on your successes! I have had only one successful venture with this--a glowing red rose that i purchased years ago as a bagged rose from KMart. It had no name, only a couple of letters and a bunch of numbers--a code name prior to its official introduction no doubt but I didn't know such stuff at the time. I'm guessing it is a type of florist rose. I made 6 cuttings from it one Fall and just stuck them in the ground at the base of the mother plant. 4 made it and were growing well into the Spring--until my husband "helped" me in the garden. Came into the house and proudly announced that he pulled the suckers off the red rose. He's not allowed out there unsupervised anymore. Laurel
