    cotinus

    Ive tried them from cuttings many times, soft and hardwood, used different hormone combinations. I even tried no hormone.

    I ve given up on this guy and are going seed. I prefer seed rather than cuttings on certain varieties. I find that the plant develops a better branched plant. Cedar is the other. The seedlings are small compared to cuttings but once well rooted the jump.

    From seed

    George-I think you'll be happy doing these from seed. One big grower last year said just grow lots and he'd buy em...always a demand for cotinus as long as they are purple.

    I doubt one retail customer in a thousand would know the difference between cutting and seed grown, they just want a nice purple leaved plant!
