Concluding Remarks

Propagating lilacs from cuttings is difficult, but very possible if timing is strictly considered. The relatively few supplies it takes to produce a successful cutting make it a fun experiment for a home gardener and a successful finished product will yield a plant that the propagator can look at in their landscape and be proud of. The common lilac is a favorite in many different landscapes, and its sweet smelling cut flowers are an added bonus to a plant that is enjoyed both indoors and out, yielding fruits of labor that persist for multiple years.
