Hostas & Butterfly Bush

Hostas & Butterfly Bush

When is a good time to divide hostas? I'm in zone 7. I've got quite a few large ones and I'd like to divide them to fill in a new bed we have in our yard.
Last year when we were making the bed, they hadn't come up yet and I chopped right through one. I thought I had killed it, but come spring it came up fine. I know they're pretty hardy.

Also, does anyone know how to root a butterfly bush? I have a huge one that I would like to take a stem from and replant in our new bed. A neighbor told me to cut off a healthy branch, did it in root hormone and stick in the ground. Is there anymore I should know?
