Can Dusty Miller Plants be Divided?

Can I divide my Dusty Miller plants ? They are getting to big for where they are planted.

Thanks
Rick

DM is an Artemisia, and like most of it's brethren, it's pretty vigourous, so have at it...

Absolutely! :D

Actually, I have one that is too big for the location in which I planted, so I plan to dig it up and move it.

Ole Dummy,

A couple of days ago, I dug up my Dusty Miller with the intention of just moving it but it seperated into a few different plants. I planted them in 2 different spots (about 1 foot apart), gave them some Vitamin B, some fresh top soil and a good drink of water and they seem to be doing fine.

Have you divided up yours yet?
