Lilac Bushes

Anonymous added on February 27, 2014 | Answered

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.

While I can't say with certainty that it will survive, you could try to root the cutting. This article should help you with that: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/trees/tgen/how-to-root-cuttings-from-various-shrubs-bushes-and-trees.htm
