Making Two Plants from One

Years ago, my father-in-law, Jerry, noticed a flower he liked along the Clark Fork River in Missoula. He took a cutting of it to bring home and plant in his rock garden. Later, when he noticed the flower no longer grew in its original location, he took another cutting and re-planted it. It sounds like magic, but propagating plants in this way is relatively easy. I wrote this short piece for Outside about how to make two plants from one.
