I got Chloris sucker... now how do I baby it?

10 years ago

I got a sucker of Chloris (alba) - it is basically a stick with 3 leaves and underground runner part, with something that looks like a tiny bit of root. I am not too worried about that, as it looks like normal sucker, from for example, lilac, but I am a bit puzzled how to best baby it to the nice and strong rose.

Should I pot it for now? Should I plant it straight into a soil (heavy clay here)? How much it generally suckers around once in the soil? Anything else that I should know about it?
