How do you root a cutting from a Camellia?

14 years ago

In the "plants your garden would be lost without" thread, foxesearth mentioned rooted cuttings of Camellias. How do you root a cutting? My Grandmother had one in her yard that bloomed in the winter. In January and February, it would just be loaded with deep red, rose-like blooms. We tried burying a limb in the dirt underneath, but it would never take root. Are there certain conditions Camellias like better than others? Hers was on the west side of the house (actually too close to the house). I've always wanted a piece of it - but didn't have a clue as to how to do it. Grandmother loved to garden, she could grow anything. I, unfortunately, didn't inherit her green thumb. Thanks for any advice you can give me!!
