As for rooting hydrangeas, do the same rules apply? Should you find a stem that didn't flower or does that matter as long as it has leaves?

Thank you! Deborah

Deborah, the same rules do apply, they are basically the same for perennials and woodies. If the plant has a flower or seed, it won't work on that stem or at least remove them. There are different types of hydrangea, so cuttings may be collected at different times. I have not grown hydrangeas from cuttings but know many who have. They tend to ripen or become more snappy, later in the year, early fall for example. But the same rules apply. There are also YouTube videos that show the technique. Good luck!
