I'm trying to root this plant but will it work?

japonica means from Japan, see earlier thread re use of Latin names.

I'm not a cuttings expert, kiss of death really, like me and a house plant

If you've only got a leaf and its stalk and can't get anything else, I'd reduce the leaf area and hope.

Give it a try you might get something really good.

I threaten them Jane. Much talk of saws and shredders and what happens if they don't behave

I think you need some stem, not a leaf stalk and less leaf. there'll be too much water loss with the proportions you've got there

I don't know if plants like being pruned but I think most people cut back ribes hard after flowering, or after it would have flowered in your case.

But I wouldn't have thought the lack of pruning would stop it flowering. Pruning is what we do to suit us. Plants get on very well left to themselves.

Occasionally you get a plant that just doesn't flower. Years ago I had 2 weigelas, one never did flower though the 2 were the same size and looked just the same except for flowers.

I'd prune it, feed it, threaten it, and if it doesn't perform next year, dig it up.

From the name I assume this is a variety or cultivar of the blue one and the blue genes will still be in there. More likely to come white but not definitely would be my guess

It dies back completely in winter.

Yes, get it done soon or you'll be damaging the new growth

Have you still got it Blueboots? A photo might help.

If bryony you won't find the foliage now.
