Dividing established penstemon?
I have a penstemon in one location for at least 3 years that is crowding some of my other plants. Can I lift and divide a penstemon plant? Any tips or guidelines will be greatly appreciated. Thank You!

Penstemon can be lifted and divided. Some types are much more fibrous-rooted than others, and are quite easily divided. (Pine-leaf penstemon is an example). Others are more clump formers, but still can be divided by digging the entire clump and slicing through it with a sharp spade. Reset the divided clumps immediately and water them in.
