I have one. It's a bit tricky for me because I grow it in a container because I doubt it would be winter hardy here. It's not a large plant and all the growth comes from a single woody vine at soil level. It's never suckered and the crown is small. A friend came by and would like a piece. I've never propagated it and trying to research getting a cutting doesn't sound very hopeful. This is certainly the wrong time of year to do that apparently. Has anyone here any experience with propagating 'Lady Margaret'. There must be some way because it's often for sale in places. I'll have to cut it down from the trellis to move inside for the winter anyway. Since I'm going to hacking things off anyway, is there any chance I can use some of the vine above where it's cut off?

Hi i used to have her i have rooted her. I take 100% pearlite in a container wet it have drain holes in container so water flows out. Take your cuttings and dip them in rooting hormone and gently push down in pearlite 3 inches keep it in light no sun it will take anywhere up to 3 weeks before you see roots.
