intensifies after rain or irrigation. Seeds remain viable in the
ground for more than one season.Cuttings: Cuttings should be 4-8
inches long and partially buried 3-5 inches deep in soil in pots or
a prepared seedbed. For quick soil cover, plant cuttings 10-15
inches apart. Do not allow cuttings to dry out before, during or
