Hi! I need to know how to propagate Daphne. Last spring my aunt gave me a flowering branch off of one of her shrubs. I was able to identify it as Daphne mezereum (or Febuary Daphne). The Daphne shrub was my grandmothers, and id really like to be able to grow a start from it. Ive heard that it is difficult to propagate Daphne, but im willing to give it a try. Right now I have several new cuttings in a jar of water. Any advice would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!
