Little blue stem

Ornamental Grasses can be easily divided in the spring just as they start to develop new growth.

Dividing plants is an easy way to get more plants for free.

I subscribe to Fine Gardening magazine, and always enjoy the comments by Steve Aitken, the editor. Once, when referring to division, he said to imagine you bake a cake. You leave it on the counter overnight, and in the morning it is surrounded by cupcakes! A very clever analogy to plant division. I always remembered it.
