Can my Trumpet Flower Vine be propagated from snipped sections containing
aerial roots? I've never had much luck transplanting them from the wild
(it takes almost three years for them to re-establish and start growing) and
store bought ones don't do much better. I'm trying to find a quicker way to
make more and wondered if perhaps they grew better from snippings. Would
you start them in water first or just put rooting hormone on them and plant
them? Any suggestions will be appreciated.
Our trumpet vine has grown nicely and flowers profusely. But it sends
out runners and sprouts pop up about 6 feet from the main plant. This
drives GF nuts and I tried using a shovel to make a circular cut around
the plant, but it didn't work. This year she cut it way back and I'm
using black plastic over the garden where the sprouts were appearing.
If you live in near Boston, you are welcome to come and get some
sprouts, as many as you want. It took about 5 years for it to start
the sprouting. Maybe you just need to wait longer.
As each new year zooms by, I find it harder to plant things that won't show
results for years and years and years. For instance: my horse scared 20
years off my life last night by putting his leg up to his thigh into a 10"
septic tank pipe in the ground. If I shave that 20 years off the crappy end
of my life, I'm not sure I have five years left to wait for my Trumpet Vine
to put it's little flowering ass into gear and produce for me.
