Can you divide a hydrangea plant?

I suppose you could, but I do not recommend it without great care. Hydrangeas are woody shrubs. In general, I do not consider woody shrubs as candidates for root division. I would, however, multiply my woody shrubs by "rooting" cuttings of branches or through layering -the laying of a branch onto the ground and covering it with soil and a rock to encourage rooting of the stem. Once the branch has rooted, in either method, you can transplant anywhere.

If I do not respond to your comment right away, it is only because I am busy pulling out buckthorn, creeping charlie, and garlic mustard...
