Glyptostrobus grafting (3 Replies)

Posted August 26, 2014 at 12:35 pm

Hello My name is Robert Dowell. I am a new member of the ACS. I am
currently an intern at the
Arnold Arboretum–a place with a great conifer collection!

Currently I am involved in a conservation project with Glyptostrobus pensilis.
I want to pick anyone and everyone’s brain on this species. Has
anyone had experience with grafting it?
Can it be grafted onto Taxodium sp. or Metasequoia glyptostroboides?
Also, has anyone observed it in USDA hardiness zones 6b or colder?

Thank you and I look forward to many great conifer discussions

I have grafted them on Taxodium distichum with 100% success.

Hi John,

I’m curious to know more. What time of year did you graft? What was your method?

Side-veneer I’m guessing? Any information is helpful. Thanks.

Hello John,
glyptostrobus pensilis ‘Wolly Mammoth’ has done well in SE Iowa in zone 5b/6a. It is on Taxodium distichum.
