Seems like a perfect time to start taking cuttings[for next year plants] for those of us who live in colder zones and want to keep certain plants going. Im sure some have already started and I will very soon. Cupheas, Amistad, and Oxyphora are on the list for me. Im going to try and over winter wendys wish in my garage which has an inwall heater.

I took Amistad, Embers Wish and David Verity cuttings a week or so ago. The salvia are blooming from side-shoots so fast that it is difficult to find perfect cutting material. Fortunately the plants are fairly forgiving.

I had trouble finding any side shoots on my sal oxyphora, but you do what you have to at this time of year. My black and bloom are potted, still debating on the direction to go with those.

I just started some david verity, shumannii, Embers wish, Mulberry Jam, and Betsy's choice. Betsy's choice went limp quick. Will see if I have to take more cuttings.

I'm definitely not looking forward to doing all the cutting work, but I suppose I shouldn't wait too much longer.

I'm thinking about taking some Cuphea DV cuttings this year. I'd love to have at least 2-3 more in my yard. The one I have now has been blooming since the first week of June and is showing no signs of stopping.
