Propagating Beauty Berry (Callicarpa)

Posted by karyn1 MD 7 ( on

Can I propagate my Beauty Berry from hard and/or soft wood cuttings? It seems that Verizon sent thugs to install our FIOS lines and instead of walking around my bush they stepped right on it (and other plants)! Many of the branches snapped and had to be pruned off. The branches range from a 1" diameter to very thin pliable stems and all are covered in immature berries. I'm so angry that they destroyed part of my garden and would love to salvage what I can.

Karyn, go ahead and start them now. You shouldn't have any trouble getting them to root.
