I imagine they do. But it's much easier to root a cutting .

I would take cuttings when the new growth begins in the spring. As for me, I use the Forsyth Pot method (you can research that either here on NGA or on the internet). I use rooting hormone (gel) but others will give different answers. Here is one link for the Forsyth(e) Pot method of propagation:

Growing from a cutting, you will get exactly the same plant - it will be a clone. Growing from seed, well, some seed sellers are not all that reputable and there is no telling what, if anything, will grow.

Like Greene said, in spring.
I suppose you could start some with lites in house. Naw ! To much bother, for me.

Cuttings is soil for me . For me, in water, stuff always rots. Others have better luck in water.

I've never owned any root hormone.

I don't the method @greene mentioned, but she is a smart lady.
