Make a new plant by simply cutting between the rooted stem and the mother plant. Plants that have woody roots include candytufts (Iberis spp. and cvs., Z 5–9), euonymus (Euonymus spp. and cvs., Z 4–9), lavenders (Lavandula spp. and cvs., Z 5–10), sages (Salvia spp. and cvs., Z 5–10). In this video, author and instructor Janet Macunovich demonstrates how to divide woody plants.
