Can you root Flowering Dogwood: steeping it below the graft-union

Can you get flowering dogwood (Cornus florida) on it's own roots by steeping it so that the graft-union is buried? Will it sprout roots causing the understock to rot-away and be replaced by the new root system, or will it die?

The GRAFT will rot & then since the top will NOT have roots the top will die. so forget it.
Take cuttings of tip firm new growth4-6 inches long & apply 0.3% IBA (rooting hormone) stick in well drained soil & mist....bottom heat may help.
