    I found a Joe Pye last year and I love it! Still looking for goats beard! Can Joe Pye be divided = when would be the best time to do it

    Heather, Joe Pye can certainly be divided. I would do so in early spring, just as you start to see growth.
  • Sensible Gardening and Living
    Yes indeed Heather. It divides beautifully and is a very strong, hardy plant. I agree with Douglas, spring is the best time.
  • Sensible Gardening and Living
    I enjoy them too, every year the suppliers nicely introduce a new variety or two for us!
