I have a sweet autumn in a pot and after flowering I found several babies growing on the lawn. I've dug up several and place in pots but two I place in ground.
The one in front bed is over a year old and I've noticed that it has buds already. It must really like it in ground since the ones in pots are languishing. I planted another baby clem last year along side of the yellow butterfly vine and it, too, is taking off.

Betsy: This is a lovely plant, but it is vigorous! And we found it invasive in our garden, so we no longer allow it to take hold.
That being said, I did see a large tree trunk that someone had allowed SAC to grow over and it was stunning! As long as you
keep it in bounds, it'll be great for you.

Betsy, I have been looking for a Sweet Autumn. I tried growing some from seed, but had no luck. If you ever have any spare volunteers, please keep me in mind!
Confidence is that feeling you have right before you do something really stupid.
