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 winter of 2021 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?
Following are photoes of the cutting I tried inpure perlite at winter of 2021-2022. They were taken at the most promising time. However since then they went downhill and eventually all failed
The green tips had not really opened before they shriveled
Unfortunately none of the cuttings had rooted
Thank you very much and happy gardening!
