Take a Cutting – Hibiscus

A relative of the Abutilon, the hibiscus is just as easy to strike.  My collection of hibiscuses have all been cloned to reside in the gardens of friends.  One was given to me by a friend who later received a gift of its clone when she moved home.

A cutting grown plant is a clone, with exact DNA and therefore attributes of its donor.  So select your cuttings from the best and healthiest of plants.




It takes time, care and patience to nurse a cutting to a viable plant.  Success is not guaranteed.   Buy one if you are looking for an instant effect.  If you are in Sydney, buy from the Huge Plant Sale and help support cancer research and services.
