Herbaceous and Itoh peonies are propagated by root division, and sometimes by seed. Tree peonies can be propagated by grafting, division, seed, and from cuttings, although root grafting is most common commercially.

Herbaceous peonies may not be in bloom yet, but their cousins, the tree peonies, are showing off already. Tree peonies boost even larger blooms than the perennial garden favorite and can be propagated by layering. Bring them indoors to create mini bouquets in just a few minutes.

I love Coleus, one of the most reliable plants in my Florida garden. Very easy to propagate and share with friends. I discovered a special bonus with this year. If you plant them next to fruit trees and let them flower they attract more bee's to pollinate.

Philadelphus species and cultivars are hardy plants that are easily grown. They do best in a position in full sun, partial shade, or in deciduous open woodland in moist well-drained soil. Planting in full sun will increase flower production. Lightly trim after flowering and thin any congested growth. Propagate from softwood cuttings taken in summer, or hardwood cuttings taken in autumn and winter.

'Walker's Low' catmint (Nepeta x faassenii 'Walker's Low'). Sweetly scented foliage and clear lavender flowers are trademarks, and it thrives in lean soil and sun. This "cat" grows to about 3 feet high and wide, and it's wise to give it that much space to spread. Catmint (Nepeta, USDA zones 3 to 9) is another fast-growing, easy-to-propagate plant that mimics lavender's growth habit and style.

Euphorbia Polychroma 'Midas' A compact mound of mid green foliage bears bright yellow flowers and bracts from spring. In autumn the foliage is tinged red. Cut the flowered stems down to ground level after they have flowered, in late summer or early autumn. The simplest way to propagate this plant is by division. This should be done in late summer to early autumn once it has finished flowering. Generally pest and disease-free. Yay!
