What Do They Mean "Grafted onto a Standard"?
So you can buy Korean Dwarf Lilacs as either a shrub or a tree. The tree form is simply a Korean Dwarf Lilac shrub grafted onto a "standard." So I researched and found out what a standard is in general. It still doesn't tell me specifically what plant I need to graft a Korean Dwarf Lilac onto to make a Korean Dwarf Lilac Tree. I already have a shrub version and I wouldn't mind trying my hand at grafting to make my own tree version, but I have no idea what I'm supposed to use for the stem portion.
I was told that whatever was used, it would have to be of the syringa genus. However, I did some more researching and it turns out you can graft lilacs onto white ash. So is that what you need to use? Does anyone have any idea?
