My dog chewed a branch off my 2-yr old lilac bush. The piece he chewed off grew buds on it. Can I plant it or put it in water to root it, or is the broken off branch a lost cause? The branch was left on the ground for the better part of 2 weeks but it is budding out at the same rate as the rest of the bushes.
