Stem Cutting Propagation of Bottlebrush Buckeye

Richard E. Bir and H.W. Barnes

pp: 499-502

Stem cuttings of bottlebrush buckeye (Aesculus parviflora) were taken monthly after vegetative bud break from May through July. Cuttings taken in May rooted at significantly higher percentages than those taken in July. In another study, cuttings were treated with 0, 2500, 5000, and 10,000 ppm IBA in solvents of water, propylene glycol, or ethanol. Cuttings treated with ethanol had the greatest number of roots per rooted cutting and the highest rooting percentage. The best treatment producing the highest rooting percentage was 2500 ppm IBA in ethanol.
