can white elm be grafted on red elm?

jocelynpeiMay 15, 2014

Does anyone know if red elm will accept white elm scions? I have been given scions off a lovely old elm that blew down and have only smaller white/american elms on the home place. There is, however, a much larger red elm. I have a few more scions in the fridge and just wondered if I should try them on the red elm.

Well, looks like U rubra can be multiplied on U americana stocks, so perhaps the reverse will apply. I'll try it anyway and report back. The old tree blew down in January, but the scions still look pretty good.
