the last hurricane somewhat up-rooted a large shrub silverado. I don't want to throw away what I will cut, so how do I replant/salvage what I cut off to make more?

You can propagate your beautiful Silverado by taking 4" inch cuttings of new growth (after flowering in summer). Remove the leaves from the lower two inches and dip the cut end in rooting hormone. Put the cuttings in a container of moistened potting soil. Make sure the growing medium is moist but does not remain too soggy. Set the containers in a shaded spot in your garden. The cuttings should root in 3-4 weeks.
