Escallonia Propagation

Are escallonia able to propagate via cuttings? If so, are they best gathered in autumn and kept in sand over winter (akin to cotoneaster), or are cuttings better in spring?

PS I'm on the south coast of Vancouver Island / Canada (zone 7).

Far, far easier IMHO is to ground layer. IIRC new wood is best for rooting, Hartmann et al. state direct root in liner pots @ 1k ppm IBA.

All of my 8" long hardwood cuttings taken in January & inserted into leaf mold sprouted & even bloomed this summer. I was rather surprised because 1 gallon pots of them didn't bloom though a different Escallonia.
