how exactly do you take successful Clerodendrum cuttings? some places say root suckers. other places say root cuttings in winter for good results. i'm thinking maybe someone on here has had success.

it's clerodendrum quadriloculare - although i would like the bleeding heart vine.

I just stick fresh cuttings in Miracle Gro and keep them wet, via the sprinkler system - they root for me.

I stuck some about a month ago and they are rooted. I would think that in your zone, any time would work - keeping the medium moist, but not wet, will be a key factor. Place them in a shaded area. Come back and let us know of your success.

I've also had success transplanting suckers of Clero. quadrioculare.

Mine will root its cuttings in plain water but not when the weather's cold. It's getting ready to bloom now, so it's a bad time to take cuttings.

Let's hope the weather stays warm enough for them to bloom! Last year was the first time mine has made it. Lost all its leaves for 4 months the 2 years before that.

thanks for the help! because of the blooms, i might just wait until spring. but if i can get a sucker then i might be able to try it.
my neighbor's bush did drop everything, only being able to flower this last winter - like you said dyzzypyxxy.
