I would like to introduce some of my native honeysuckle Orange Honeysuckle (Lonicera ciliosa) into my yard. My first attempt was to just jam a chunk directly into the ground in early spring (hey, sometimes that works...). Fail. My next plan is to take cuttings and stick them in water with some willow twigs and see if I can get some roots. I've had good luck with ground layering for getting starts of my cultivated honeysuckles, but these wild guys are in the midst of brambles, climbing into aspen trees, so that isn't really an option. Any other ideas?
I want to live in a world where the chicken can cross the road without its motives being questioned.

I never did get any response to this, so thought I'd bump it up and see if anyone can help. Per the database, propagation can be done by stem cuttings, which seems odd to me as they are hollow. Maybe if I use the very skinny ends and put them in water? I have one vine that is impossible to get to the base of, so ground layering won't work for me.
