The Bullwinkle (Mike) brought me this Van Houti as a "soft wood" rooted cutting late in the summer. Roots were discovered coming out the drain holes in its one gallon container so it got stepped up to a three gallon in early December. Because of our unbelievable weather conditions, this plant really exploded. This must be a vigorous cultivar. Destined to get planted in the Spring, photo was taken early this morning.
