All of the plants you list can be propagated in the spring or summer by taking tip cuttings. Take 3-5 inch long cuttings from terminal shoots, dip them in rooting hormone powder and plant them in a pot filled with sand or potting soil. Keep the soil warm (75F)and moist for quickest rooting. In about 4-6 weeks the cuttings will have rooted enough to be planted.
