I've only taken soft and hard wood cuttings.
How do I recognize semi-hard wood on Tea roses?

A.R.E. suggests semi-hard wood cuttings taken in September and I live in a warm climate near San Francisco, Ca

Thank you,

RE: How do I recognize semi-hard wood?

semi-hard or semi-ripe means the time period between when there is already a clear cut flower bud on it, up to the point where the bloom has fallen off. before that, it is green wood, and after that it gets progressively more ripe. semi-ripe is just right for roses, it won't rot quickly like green-wood, and it roots much more quickly than ripe wood.
