Why not knock on the door and ask permission to take a small cutting? My house is not really on a traffic street, but if I caught you trying to take a cutting without my permission, I wouldn't be nice to you.

Years ago I used to make my children snatch bits of likely plants that were 
"sticking out" of a yard.  We would drive to wherever there was a likely 
candidate, and I would tell them that "they won't arrest children...." and "no 
one will notice a tiny bit missing".... They would sink down in the car seat and 
whine, "no - please - not again!"  Sometimes I would pass an interesting plant 
for even several years, saying to myself that I should try to get a start - and 
suddenly it would be gone, a victim of homeowner disapproval or a bulldozer.  So 
this is a good deed we're doing, as long as the original can spare some of its 
parts.  -Cynthia W Mueller
