Philadelphus, I would take semi ripe cuttings now. A really strong new shoot should just be at the right stage. Up to 6 inch long, cut below a leaf joint, dip in hormone rooting powder or gel,stick 4 in the corners of a 3 inch sq pot of gritty compost. Cover with plastic bag or stand in a propagator tray with cover on. You will not need heat. They should root by the end of summer and I would pot on when they start with new leaves in spring.
