Softwood cutting Dianthus Anatolicus


Its probably too late this year but I have a Dianthus Anatolicus that is doing really well and I thought to propagate it. On the internet I note it says it can be done by softwood cuttings. This plant does not have normal shoots or leaf nodes. Each bunch of almost prickly leaves is on the surface of the plant cushion and all join the toughish brown stem right at the top with no leaves further down. So do I cut as near to the leaf cluster as possible and place that virtually on the surface of the soil or cut lower on the brown stem and plant the stem with the leaf cluster out above the soil so there is no leaf node underground.
