Propagating Pyracantha

Post  JimLewis on Thu Dec 02, 2010 10:23 pm

Has anyone had success growing Pyracantha from hardwood cuttings? Dirr says softwood cuttings root readily, but I'd like to work with something a bit larger.

Hello Jim. Pyracantha airlayer very well so hardwood cuttings should be easy too.

Thanks. I guess I'll give several sizes of cuttings a try next spring. I have this huge, very-small-leaved pyracantha growing behind the house.

Jim, I put a few hardwood pyracantha cuttings in the ground (3/8 inch diameter) this Summer from some collected trees. They still have green leaves on them. The soil that they're in is a clay-loam which stay pretty moist. I presume they started to root but won't know for sure until I dig them up next Spring.

IIRC, Dirr & Heuser recommends taking the cuttings in July - August.

... just sayin'.

Yes Libby, One was pencil thickness (it is growing well), and the others were approx 1/8 if an inch thick (they are doing well also).
