Coleonema (breath of heaven) propogation?

gardenerme(z9/21 inland socal)December 2, 2008

I have had a golden coleonema in a container for a couple of years and it is gorgeous. I was just trimming and cleaning up the lower branches and have lots of cuttings, hard and soft wood. Has anyone had any success propogating these? I would love to have more . . . .

Yes you can propagate coleonema easily from cuttings. If you are used to starting cuttings they do not require anything special. Although coleonema is slow growing it is a durable plant that will get to four or five feet high in the garden. Al

Of course it would be you who would know! I love this coleonema (I believe that it is called Sunset?) It's a bright lime green/golden yellow and I would love to have more. I will definitely propogate. Thanks!
