Me too its a shame they really light up an area. I only have one how do you propagate them ??

Bernieh:

Thanks! Go luck with the hunting. : > )

Mushybanna:

They can be propagated by putting cuttings in water or by just
sticking them into the ground (all year round here). They are
tough plants...however, they do need water.(their drought tolerance
is very low)

Yes they root easilly in a jar of water.

Much prettier than the name Bloodleaf Shrub suggests.

Hywel,

Yes, generally within 4 or 5 days Bloodleaf will start rooting in a jar of water.

Drc726, you are correct. : > ) It is sometimes also called
Poor Man's Croton.
