Hello there!

You can, but there are a few things to note. It is in flower, which will inhibit rooting hormone. Powder rooting hormone will be a good options for this situation.

You might want to obtain some smaller tip cuttings to help with faster rooting. Remove flowers and plant them. Keep them only slightly moist and plant out when they root!
