I grow red dragon. It's easy to divide. Likes well drained soil...even poor soil, although there it grows more slowly. So, not cuttings but division or basal pieces with a trowel.
It's very hardy for me....s.w. Cornwall.....but it can be hit by slight late frosts. It recovers well enough though.
It benefits by being cut back regularly in the summer.....makes a denser, richer coloured plant. Domt like it to flower. I would divide soon and pot up or have some fleece handy during cold winter spells or even later in the spring if frosts are still a problem.
