Can Tri-Colored Birch cuttings be rooted

Posted by karyn1 MD 7 ( on

If so what's the best way? Do you want to use this seasons growth or older wood? About how long does it take for them to root? I took some cuttings of firm new growth, dipped them in rooting hormone and put them in perlite in a covered pot a few weeks ago but I can't tell if they are taking or not.
