I have had Lola Branham for 11 years and I can't recall that I ever had to divide it. It grows very slow in my climate and it is not what I would call a very prolific bloomer. It blooms late, which is a plus, but I only get about 2 scapes on it. Scapes sometimes do not stand erect and are prone to leaning quite a bit which is not a plus for this cultivar. I love her pretty face so that is why I keep her.

I can repeat that almost word for word, although I have had it only 5 or 6 years. Love the look of it, and the late bloom, but it doesn't last long. It has multiplied slightly from when I got it, but no need to divide it yet by any means. Which is sometimes a bonus if you don't have any reason to divide. Mine gets morning & late afternoon shade, I have wondered if it would do better with more sun, but it gets at least 6 hours of full sun.
