Japan Andromeda #390677

Asked March 28, 2017, 3:35 PM EDT

A branch broke off a Japan andromeda plant today, and I wonder if I can get  the branch to grow roots  and then replant it?  I have put the detached branch in a glass of water.

Expert Response

The cutting will not root in water.
Pieris japonica and cultivars are propagated from softwood cuttings and greenwoods during July and August. Cuttings harvested in mid-October and late November also root. See more on propagation
