Late Summer Is The Best Time To Divide These Perennial Plants
Yellow Alyssum
The yellow alyssum flower is native to Asia and Europe and features tiny, clustered flowers that may only grow up to a foot tall but can reach as wide as 18 inches.
This perennial effortlessly reseeds itself, but its self-seeding can get invasive if not maintained by dividing the plant when the blooming season has ended in late summer.
Bearded Iris
The bearded iris is adored for its vibrant hues and unique petal display that features three outside petals falling low while three inner petals sit high.
Blooming in late spring and early summer, it’s best to divide this plant every three to five years during the late summer after the bloom season.
Easter Lily
Easter lily, part of the Liliaceae family and native to Japan's southern islands, is a popular flower every April when the holiday approaches.
Easter lilies naturally bloom in late summer and prefer up to 12 hours of sunlight daily. To keep them from overcrowding, divide them once every three to four years in late summer.
Oriental Lily
The oriental lily is a hybrid lily desired for its vibrant pinks, reds, and whites. It is said to have a strong, sweet fragrance and needs acidic soil.
This is typically the last type of lily to flower each season, reaching full bloom in late summer. They should be divided once every three years during this time.
Sweet Woodruff
Sweet woodruff is a creeping ground clover known for its durability. It has star-like foliage and small, clustered white flowers and it boasts a fresh scent.
Blooming in mid to late spring, this plant quickly spreads throughout the garden and can turn invasive. You can prevent this by dividing it in late summer.
