Grown from cuttings. These two abutilons are about a year old. Both were literally just sticks in the mud at one point and now are beautiful shrubs.
I have had luck with the same technique with several plant species.
First select a healthy branch about two feet long, ideally previous years growth.
Cut at a 45 degree angle.
Trim all but top 4-5 leaves and cut in half any bigger leaves to prevent it from loosing excess moisture.
Then plant in soil that keeps moist. (I've had luck with clay and sand)
So far this propagation technique has worked with #abutilon#limelightsage#ribes#echium#mexicansage#roses#brambles#ficus#dracaenas#cordylines#hydrangeas#floweringquince#pelargonium and even #tomatoes !
No no no! Ini bukan Lavender ya pemirsa, tapi Mexican Sage (Salvia Leuchanta). Tanaman ini lebih banyak dipakai untuk menarik pollinators atau bunga potong dari pada dijadikan Herbs. Punya saya sudah mau mekar lagi nih.. Oya, tanaman ini dibanyakin dengan stek batang lhoo! Tinggal potong trus tancep deh hehe.. Gampang kan!
I was quite obsessed with salvias for a few years, especially this kind in all it’s purple fuzziness. #salvia#sage#mexicansage Remember, weeds are just flowers that weren’t invited to the party #partycrashers
I see a garden in our future!
Always so fun, so rewarding to have a garden!
We aren't having much of a winter here in Southern Ca. feels more like spring and I'm not complaining!
What ever weather you find yourself in today, you can rest in God's faithfulness! #Lean "Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make your paths."
Happy Saturday friends!
