What can lilacs be grafted onto? They can be grafted onto another lilac or onto privet. Multiple different varieties can be grafted onto one species to create a multicolored tree. Lilacs offer creative possibilities by grafting different varieties onto them, each in a different color, resulting in a multicolored tree. Privet is ideal as a rootstock for grafting other varieties - more noble ones. Lilacs are most commonly grafted using budding, which involves using a bud.

When is budding done? It is done in the summer, which simplifies the grafting process since the scions do not need to be stored. One-year-old shoots should be selected for the scions, from which the leaves are removed, leaving only the stem and the bud. Then, an eye is cut out to insert it into the slit of the rootstock.

Good luck!
