Rooting Ability of Fifteen Native Shrubs Using Hardwood Cuttings in the Field and Greenhouse

There is a need for more information on how well native shrubs root from hardwood cuttings and how they can apply to soil bioengineering practices such as live stakes and fascines. The purpose of this work was to screen fifteen shrubs indigenous to the Pacific Northwest USA for their ability to root with and without a rooting compound in a greenhouse mist bench, well drained field, nursery bed, and saturated substrate (pond). Results indicate species with good potential are black twinberry (Lonicera involucrata), salmonberry (Rubus spectabilis), snowberry (Symphoricarpos albus), and Pacific ninebark (Physocarpus capitatus). Indian plum (Oemleria cerasiformis), coyote brush (Baccharis pilularis), and red elderberry (Sambucus racemosa) have fair potential. Mock orange (Philadelphus lewisii) and flowering currant (Ribies sanguineum) may apply under limited circumstances.
