Looks like you are having good luck rooting those cuttings. They should do well for you.

Looking good, Rick! I think maybe I should put my seedlings out for the summer, but it would mean totally replacing the soil to bring them in for winter (too many critters out there..).. I've very sceptical about them surviving winter here, but will try some day...

I have enough cuttings to try outside, too. (Not all were shown.)  Every piece rooted.  But I think it will be next winter for testing, not this coming one.  Even my friend in northern Wisconsin, who seems to be able to grow anything, has problems with this one.
