Title: Vegetative propogation of 11 common Alaska woody plants.

Author: Holloway, P.; Zasada, J.;

Date: 1979

Source: Res. Note PNW-RN-334. Portland, OR: U.S. Department of Agriculture, Forest Service, Pacific Northwest Research Station. 12 p

Publication Series: Miscellaneous Publication

Description: Vegetative propagation trials were conducted with stem, root, and rhizome cuttings of Alnus, Arctostaphylos, Ledum, Populus, Salix, Shepherdia, Vaccinium, and Viburnum. With the exception of Alnus incana and Shepherdia canadensis, stem cuttings of all species produced some roots. Softwood stem cuttings of Salix bebbiana and Viburnum edule rooted much better than hardwood cuttings of the same species; hardwood and softwood stem cuttings of other species were about equal in performance. Rooting media, wounding, and hormone treatments did not affect rooting of stem cuttings in the majority of cases. Root or rhizome cuttings of Vaccinium uliginosum and Shepherdia canadensis appeared more promising for vegetative propagation of these species than stem cuttings.

Keywords: Vegetative propagation, stem cuttings, root cuttings, rhizome cuttings, woody plants, Alaska
