Separating Shastas

Since I'm gearing up for fall cleanup and garden damage control as soon as the baby is born and I'm back on my feet.... I need some advice about my shasta daisies!! They seem a bit crowded as it's almost impossible to keep them watered and I know you're supposed to divide these at least every couple of years... But does anyone know the best time of year to divide them?

We have very very very mild winters here (most of my plants grow through the winter.. only things like hibiscus or other severely tropical plants go dormant most years...) so would it be okay to divide them in the fall? Also -- how rough can you be with them? Do I have to be careful and untangle roots or will they survive cutting the roots into sections -- such as when you divide daylilies, irises or mondo grass?

If you have men who will exclude any of God's creatures from the shelter of compassion and pity, you will have men who will deal likewise with their fellow men. -- St. Francis of Assisi
