silver buttonwood tree (conocarpus erectus)

littleme(11)September 6, 2007

Can anyone advise me of the best way to propagate a Silver Buttonwood tree from cuttings? And if it is possible, how long does it usually take to root from a cutting in soil?

I started a silver buttonwood tree from a cutting that I stole off a tree in Key West;you can also grow one from the seeds in its seedpod. Warning: they are not cold weather tolerant I'm in central Florida, I have mine in a pot and bring it in in cold weather

i collected seed from one in marathon 20 yrs ago but i couldnt keep them going. i would like to try again if you have seed to trade or other florida natives and invaders like australian beach she oak, palms,or mahogany etc. i am in iowa but i grow tropical trees in pots for fun .

Here is a link that might be useful: ricjo22's exchange list
