The Q&A Archives: What Does "division" Mean?

Question: Trying to learn as much as I can about ornamental grasses. When I'm reading about them on your site, I find the word "Division" at the end of many of the descriptions. What does this mean?

Answer: This means the plant has been propagated by division, which is simply dividing an existing plant into numerous smaller plants, each consisting of top growth and attached roots. Ornamental grasses are normally propagated this way rather than from seed.
