Want some free plants in your garden? Then divide your perennials every couple of years and fill in some bare spots. Not only will it save you money, but it will promote more flower growth the following year.

The rule of thumb is if it bloomed in the Spring and early Summer it’s safe to divide in the Fall. Here are 11 perennials you can safely divide if they are starting to look bare and overgrown.


Bee balm (Monarda)

Black-eyed Susan (Rudbeckia)

Daylily (Hemerocallis)


Peony (Paeonia)

Purple coneflower (Echinacea)

Siberian iris (Iris sibirica)


Lamb’s ears (Stachys)

Yarrow (Achillea)

And as an added bonus,  you can gift them to your friends and family!
