The Q&A Archives: How do I take starts of Daphne Odora

Question: Have very large Daphne Odora that needs trimming, can I start new plants from the limbs?

Answer: Daphne odora is reasonably easy to grow from tip cuttings. The ideal time to take cuttings is during summer. Snip a 4-6" long piece from a healthy stem; place cuttings in a pot of sand mixed with and peat propagation mix and keep in a cool, moist spot. Cuttings should root by fall.
