Transplanting a Helenenium Moerheim Beauty

hoppityhoppity Posts: 3
Hi All,
I have a Helenenium Moerheim Beauty in one of my garden beds which needs transplanting or dividing and moving. Is it to late to dothis now as its already growing really welll - around 80cm tall?
Do I reduce its height to avoid additional stress and transplant to a pot for now until its recovered?
Also can I split it now or wait until autumn/spring and can I take basal cuttings once its dug up as a back?
Sorry for all the questions. Any advice would be much appreciated.
Many thanks

    @hoppity I would not do it now wait until Autumn. It lifts and splits really well. Over the summer ensure that other plants are kept out of it's way as it is a plant that hates to be crowded out.

    Yes - they're easy to move, but probably better to wait. If you absolutely have to move it now, it would be better to cut it back a good bit.
    They also do well if divided when they get a bit more mature - like many perennials. Dividing is easier to get more plants.  :)
    I wouldn't bother with cuttings, although you can certainly do that.  I think cuttings need done in spring, so probably a bit late, but not something I've done.
