|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.
