The Q&A Archives: Virginia Creeper

Question: Can start a virgina creper with cuttings from an established plant. If sodo I put the cuttngsin wter to root or just plant in the ground?

Answer: The easiest way to propagate Virginia creeper vines is to take stem cuttings and root them. Cut off a 4 or 5 inch length of new growth or pinch off a tender sucker that has sprouted from the stem of the vine. Strip the leaves off near the cut end and dip it into rooting hormone. This powder is readily available at garden centers. Then stick the cutting in a shallow tray or box of moistened sand, perlite or soilless potting mix. In a week or 10 days thin fibrous roots should begin to develop. When they are an inch or so long, the cuttings can be planted in pots, or in the ground.
