I have several shrubs I'm trying to find out the names of.
Along with names, can I take cuttings of these and root them?

Here's a few pics.

If you go here you can see the close up pictures of the branches to get a better idea.

I like the 1st one and the last one. Minimal trimming over the past 10 years. So I thought about putting some in my yard. Can these be rooted by taking the cuttings and putting them in a greenhouse? Perhaps ready by fall or spring?

I am not sure of the types of plants shown. The last one looks like a cypress.
Most shrubs can be rooted via cuttings. Do remember that the same qualities that you admire in these, minimal trimming, means they will take time to grow into a decent size. They are not rampant growers.

Your last shrub looks like Hinoki Cypress


I love the sweet scents wafting in the breeze. I stop to admire the vibrant colors of all living things. And people think me odd. Then ODD I am!!!
