http://www.ces.ncsu.edu/depts/hort/hil/hil-8702.html recommends using semi-hardwood cuttings:
    "Semi-hardwood cuttings are usually prepared from partially mature wood of     the current season’s growth, just after a flush of growth. This type of     cutting normally is made from mid-July to early fall. The wood is reasonably     firm and the leaves of mature size. Many broadleaf evergreen shrubs and some     conifers are propagated by this method."
Follow the link for what to do with the cuttings.
