I bought a magic carpet japanese spirea and am wondering if this is something that can be split. Thanks



Hi just checked my gardening book and it said it can be propagated by dividing roots Oct-March. Also checked internet at found that it usually is propagated by sucker division or softwood cuttings rooted under mist in a warm place during the summer. Hardwood cuttings can be rooted outdoors in the Autumn. This plant also may be layered by pegging down a branch in the spring and potting it up in the Autumn. Spireas are easy to transplant. Autumn is the best time to divide plants, but spring and Autumn are both good for setting out new ones.
