Anyone have this plant there selling for cheap, around here it's about $40 and kind of expensive for something a foot tall, if I had seeds id just try to grow those instead.

A neighbor of my sister has this shrub growing in their yard. I took cuttings in late summer and have managed to root them. I am going to visit my sister today. Would you like me to get cuttings for you? It does not set seed.

Are the cuttings big enough to be planted in the ground?

Keith, have you ever rooted cuttings? I usually start mine in a one gallon pot, prepare them the usual way and then cover the pot with a glass jar or plastic baggie. This late in the year I'd trench the pot in a protected location. Yesterday I cut four of them about 12 inches long.
