Wintersweet propagation: cutting and seedlings

3 months ago
last modified: last month

Hi I am wondering anyone ever having luck propagating wintersweet via cuttings. I have a huge wintersweet shrub but is is a plain species, though very fragrant. My friend has a pure yellow type and I really want to grow one from her cuttings.

This is my species plant, purple heart

My friend’s pure yellow

I tried hardwood cutting last winter but did not have luck. Now I am considering softwood cutting and she is coming this weekend and bringing me the cuttings. I am windering if any of you folks have some experience or suggestion to share?

Thank you very much and happy gardening!
