Dividing Perennials

Keep an eye out for clumps that have grown 2-3 times their size within 2-5 years. Any overgrown clump or any clump that has simply exceeded the space allotted is a candidate for division.

Early spring is a good time for division, when the plants have begun active growth but not so well developed that the root system can't take a little disturbance.
