I hunt a lot of public land swamps in Central Minnesota. These swamps are underwater 10 months of the year at least and are covered in ROD. I am not sure about propagation, but I know that once they are established, they have no problem with being slightly submerged.So I planted a quite a few ROD cuttings this week around a swampy area. I tried to plant them on the edges of the water. Now with the rain we got, and the snow pack melting, a lot of the cuttings are completely under water. These areas dont normally have water year around, but they stay muddy, and when it rains, they will puddly over for a while.
I am just wondering if them being under water will hurt, or help them? I have no clue how long they will be under water, that depends on ol Mother Nature.
