Re: camellia propagation

Here's what it says, Pam--

Stem-tip cuttings, in which the soft tip is retained, are taken when the material has ripened more than for softwood or greenwood cuttings but the plant is in active growth, usually around mid-summer. The soft tip is then less likely to rot. This method, which can produce excellent rapid growth, is suitable for most common deciduous shrubs, such as... lilacs..., and some evergreens, such as camellias... and hibiscus rosa-sinensis.

Nodal cuttings are more likely to succeed since some plants will not root internodally. Prepare each cutting from new growth, up to 4 inches, by making a clean cut just below a node. Continue as for softwood cuttings.

No Jim I don't have that book, more's the pity. Would you start it like you would a rose cutting from what you're reading?

Pam, do you have the AHS Plant Propagation book? If so, page 101,
"Stem-tip Cuttings." If not, I'll copy the text for you. Generally,
though, it seems to be a semi-soft wood cutting taken during the
growing season.
