Grafting weeping copper beech

mainblaine456(5a)March 11, 2011

I was thinking about bud grafting a weeping copper beech tree on to an American beech rootstock this spring. Does anyone know if they will be compatible? Seems likely but curious if otherwise.

Thanks

Don't know about long-term graft compatibility, but sylvatica can be successfully grafted onto gradifolia. The JC Raulston Arboretum, for instance, offered a couple of cultivars, so grafted, a few years back to select new wealthy members of their Friends of JC Raulston Arboretum Society.

Here is a link that might be useful: See about 2/5 down the page.
