How do you root a snowball bush?

Place cuttings in a mixture of moistened half perlite, half peat in a clean 2-inch pot. Firm the rooting mixture around the cutting to hold it upright. Place cuttings in a plastic bag. Water the pots, place the sealed bag in a brightly lit area, and keep the rooting medium evenly moist.

Correspondingly, can you root a snowball bush in water?

Saturate the rooting medium thoroughly by running water over it. Allow the container to drain completely. Cut a stem from the snowball bush that is the current year's growth. Current stems on the shrub are suitable for rooting when you bend a stem and it snaps into two pieces.
