Don't know if it's the same thing, but I've had cuttings develop an unexpected large callous before rooting. If you've got the time and space, I'd suggest leaving it just to see what--if anything--happens.

20% chance of rain today, so I figured I had all the time in the world. It's pouring now, has been for a little while, but it's sure to pass on.

Three yrs ago I had great success with my softwood cuttings. I did them in vermiculite/perlite in a clear storage container. The next year, I used a larger container and got virtually nothing. Not sure why. Last yr I didn't get around to it. This year, I had reasonable success in a new container. At first I don't think it was moist enough, so I added some water. The Ninebark croaked but I got a Miss Kim lilac, a couple Monet Weigela, a variegated dogwood, a Burkwood viburnum and 3 Onondaga viburnums, some Abelia, Beautybush, and maybe Josee lilacs.

The Josees, rather than put out roots to the side, made a whitish ball at the base of the cutting. Anyone know why and are they worth keeping?

Still raining.
