Daylilies are a popular perennial to divide and should be divided and re-planted in early spring.
We all enjoy selecting new varieties to try in the garden each season, but it’s important (and fun) to also take advantage of what’s already on your property. Many perennials that have lived in your garden for several years can be divided and moved in the early spring, offering an economical way to add color to multiple beds throughout your landscape. Bonus: these plants are already thriving in your soil, so they should do very well in other parts of your garden.
Hostas are another commonly-divided perennial.
First, let’s start with what not to divide. There are some varieties, including Lupine, Bleeding Heart and Butterfly Weed, that have a single, large taproot or crown that their flowers stem from. These varieties typically won’t do well if divided.
However, there are several varieties that are actually rejuvenated when divided. After years of good growth in the garden, they will do well to be divided and moved around. These varieties include:
We recommend getting ahead of your plants and not waiting until your perennials have outgrown their space so much they are crowding each other out and dying.
Divide healthy, large plants every few seasons in the garden.
The best time to divide your plants is early spring when the plant first shows signs of new growth. This helps the new plant’s roots acclimate before the summer heat kicks in. You can also divide plants in the late fall, once they have finished growing for the season.
When digging your plant up, make sure to get as much of the root system as possible.
Shake your plant out to remove any excess soil before dividing.
We don’t recommend dividing while a plant is in bloom, but if you have to, be extra conscious of regular watering, care, and fertilizer.
If possible, divide your plants on a day you have time to re-plant them as well. If this isn’t possible (or if you’re giving them to a lucky friend) we recommend wetting the roots and storing them in a cool, shady spot, covering them with newspaper to keep them moist.
Each new clump should also have visible green growth above ground and healthy roots below.
It’s so rewarding to get out in the garden and use existing, healthy plants to beautify your property without having to spend any extra money. What are your favorite plants to divide? Please let us know in the comments below. Happy Gardening!
