 > When I just create a new instance for wpColorPicker like this: `$( 'my-
 selector' ).wpColorPicker();`, and I duplicate this div with `$.clone()`
 method. But with new html, the picker not works. So when I running `$(
 'my-new-selector' ).wpColorPicker();` again, I see two instance of the
 color picker.

 I think I understand. I think the problem is that using jQuery `clone` is
 not copying the attached event handlers and `data` attributes. So what I
 would recommend doing is upon cloning the container, that you then remove
 the color picker that was cloned and then re-initialize the color-picker
 on that element via `$( clonedElement ).find( 'my-slector'
