yes, but it'd wouldn't be successful. What would be successful is if you took a cutting, dipped it in rooting hormone, and planted it in a small (4-5") pot using a medium like potting soil with a lot of perlite. After the roots develop and the branch grows bigger, you'd then want to transplant it into the place where the plant is to be permanently. If the weather is nice, it's ok to do this outside, but if it is under 40 degrees at night then it's best to put them in the window, or use artificial lighting.

It's easy to do, a good rooting hormone to use is made by the Schultz company, it is called "Take Root" (costs about $5-6).

hope this helps! I'll provide a link for refrence which provides a visual image because its for some people (me) to see something and read about it than to read it without pictures.
