Not mentioned previously is another method of propagating incarnata that I routinely do. During the first half of the summer, incarnata will send up a lot of root shoots all over the place. I wait for them to get about 10", then grasp firmly near the bottom of the shoot. A uniform pulling will bring the shoot up with about 4 - 6" of underground shoot (appears white) I routinely pull these shoots to keep the plants where I want them.
If immediately potted up and watered (or transplanted and watered), then watered regularly you will have a nice plant identical to the parent. This works also during the latter half of the summer, but you may want to keep on a window sill or in a greenhouse for planting out the next year. Indoors the new plants are not demanding. Very easy to clone this way.
