I purchased 7 small erysimum last year. They were a wonderful addition to my rock garden, but they are taking over some of the bed selected for bulbs. My crocus are hidden under the evergreen foliage of the erysimum. I want to thin the plants for more summer annuals. How do I do that? They also have some long, leafless stems. Got suggestions?

These are quite easy to take cuttings from, so I would suggest that you trim off some small pieces and root them, then pull out the originals and plant the rooted cuttings in a larger space. Or you could just trim away the excess foliage.
