I can never quite let go of summer.
Every fall, before our first frost, I attempt some cuttings. This past fall, my coleus cuttings failed but I managed to root a couple of impatiens. These wonderful shade loving blooming plants were a victim of a blight several years back that affected many gardeners (including me) and prevented us from growing this jewel, but we now have a resistant variety called Beacon. So, impatiens are back in my flower garden.
For the second year, I grew Beacon, and for the first time, I was successful in rooting two cuttings in water.
Here they are, in bloom in a north facing window. waiting patiently for the last frost. In our area, that won't be until some time in May.
I can't wait.
