Overall: I meant to give the plant five stars, but am inept! Fingers crossed it works this time!

Overall: This plant is so easy to divide. Just lift a clump and you will see that you can easily separate it. The divided plants will re-establish surprisingly quickly.

When the flowers fade, the leaves often succumb to a powdery mildew. I recommend cutting the plants right back. They will flower again later in the summer.

This is a great plant! Highly recommended.
