Abstract: The definition of the grafting operation for quasifuchsian groups is extended by Bromberg (preprint) to all $ b$-groups. In this paper, we show that the extended grafting maps behave as continuous maps for every sequence which converges ``standardly'' to a boundary group, although the maps are not continuous in general. As a consequence of this result, we extend Goldman's grafting theorem for quasifuchsian groups to all boundary $ b$-groups.
