How do I split a Statice plant to plant in other garden areas? I've read that a Statice plant only lasts about 3 years. What does that mean? It just dies or stops flowering? Will splitting it and starting young plants help this?

You can't really dig and divide statice with any success. The plants have a woody base and resent being cut. You can collect seeds, though, and sow them in the spring. Statice is a short lived perennial. It simply dies down after 2-3 years but because it sets seeds you can have new plants coming up in your garden over the years.
