Oscularia caulescens

unlike with Oscularia deltoides, this species is incredibly easy to root from cuttings by just sticking them in the ground. So far, nearly 100% success rate, while not had a single deltoides cutting make it (and tried dozens of times now). Grows like a weed, too. Cold hardiness is at least down to 18F (so far we haven't had a lower temp, but not holding my breath).
