It is always faster to take softwood cuttings, but in this case it won't matter. This plant is highly invasive in most areas. They will root with no hormone most of the time, although hormone will increase success rate while decreasing chance of infection. Take a full fine cutting of about 6 inches to a foot, or roughly 1/3 of a meter or less.
