I was planning on getting some redbuds this coming fall for our front yard, but I've since read that you can start trees from cuttings. Has anyone had success with this? From what I've read, you can just whack off a branch, roll it in rooting powder, and stick it in a pot. Of course it will take a lot longer to get a blooming tree than buying one, but I might buy just a couple larger trees and start the rest with cuttings if this works.
I figured I'd give it a try...we have quite a few larger redbuds in the wooded area of the pasture to take cuttings from...including one huge downed redbud log that has LOTS of blooming suckers. I was just curious to see if others have tried it.
