If your lilacs stand on their own roots, you'll get the hybrid: same roots, same stems. If they stand on another rootstock, this'll probably be growth from the rootstock. Check for a graft union on your oldest/biggest stem/trunk.
Cutting and planting lilacs from suckers is easy. I did it with a fragrant bright white lilac last summer and the little guy came through the worst winter for desperately cold beginning and end in living memory just fine. I hope for first bloom in two more years.

> I have some hybrid Lilacs and there are a couple of suckers growing up about a foot away. Will those suckers, if they are transplanted, grow into hybrid lilacs? Or regular lilacs? Or nothing? Jerry in southern Indiana.
