I agree with the other posters here.   What on earth do you want to take cuttings for?    It is known as "Mile a Minute" and everyone I know who has ever planted it has come to regret it and taken it out again!

It is pretty and the bees love it ...but, I would get rid of it fast!

I believe it may have some thorns, too?

To the poster who wanted to know what Non Sequiter means, it means that you can't prune your roses!

Oh Tim.    How disappointing, and not very encouraging for us.     However, I always take the attitude that a plant has two choices, either it grows or it doesn't.     I often tell it so, as well!     If it doesn't do well, I tell myself that it isn't my gardening skills responsible for the failure, but the climate, the plant or my soil.    There are so many beautiful flowering plants I can't get hung up over a failure or two.   Penstemons are beautiful, and so reliable.     Good luck with them.

Sorry, but there is no good news here.    It is a continuous, daily battle!

Well, there's nowt as queer as folks, they say.    I expect we all have our own little gripe.    Mine is being asked to identify a plant without a photograph, when the description could fit so many flowers.    Or am I going off topic now?

I also bought Patty's Plum this year.    All my poppies rotted off - I just put it down to the rain.    I chopped off all the foliage, and am hoping for better luck next year!    Good luck with yours.

Possibly a Robinia?
