Q.Can These Leucothoe Be Saved?

Zone 06477 | Anonymous added on April 27, 2021 | Answered

Hi, I found these two plants under about 20 years of wet leaves and wayward vines and roots. After clearing out the debris, the plants are mostly horizontal. If I prune it to the main strong roots, will it grow vertically? Can I transfer the cut stems to make new babies?

You can propagate by semi-hardwood cuttings. You can rejuvenate it by cutting it back to within a few inches of the ground, though it is often used as groundcover.
