Cuttings of Franz Shubert Phlox

tammyinwv(z6/WV)August 4, 2009

There is some new growth on this plant,stems about 4-5"long. I assume I can root these? how difficult are they to take? I wtook one and prepared as usual, and stuck in my fuschia pot in the shade about 4 days ago. So far it looks OK

Usually propagate using root cuttings late fall. BUT
can try cuttings of firm new growth... applt 0.3% IBA (Rooting hormone) stick in well drained soil & mist.
