II bought my house with a 10 year old semi dwarf plum tree. It's far too big for me to need all of one type of plum so I was going to graft 4 other varieties on to it. I heard grafting plum to plum is most successful. How much does success rate drop if I was planning to graft say apricot, peach, Asain plum by bark grafting.
Euro plum will need other Euro plums grafted onto it. You can try to experiment but don't get your hopes up. I had an Elberta peach in my back yard for years. I found that it took Jap plums but not Euro, No Cherries and some Apricots. All by trial and error. You might find some info online but what I found was very little solid compatibility info. If you do find something here feel free to share what you come up with!

What type of plum is it? I've had good luck with hybrid plums on Native plum, and some luck with Apricot, though I understand that even some grafts that initially look succesful may fail after a few years from incompatibility.
