First Rainy Workday of the Summer

We tried to keep up with Tim as he lead us around the Arboretum so we could take cuttings (Tim wouldn't let us take Aesculus chinensis since it won't root). We did get to take cuttings from Callicarpa japonica 'Shiji Murasaki', Deutzia parviflora, Stachyurus 'Carolina Parakeet', Eucomis 'Sparkling Burgandy' and plenty of Salvia. Despite the rain, we enjoyed wandering around the gardens and choosing our favorite plants to propagate. We spent the afternoon potting seedlings and learning about the filemaker computer program.
