You could take a stem cutting down to the woody part let it callus
in the shade for a few days, stick it in the ground about 6
inches, prop it up vertically, and water it well. Keep it
somewhat moist but not sopping wet. Do this in the summer so it
has time to root before the colder weather. Success is not great
in my experience.
Or you could take a green softwood cutting, dust it with a rooting
hormone, and start in sand or a well-drained medium just like any
other stem cutting. Success is pretty good but it takes longer to
get a large plant.
Or you could start it from seed.
