Most definitely and now would be the ideal time to do it, before it gets too hot. You can normally divide these plants anytime from spring through fall.

Make sure each new clump has some roots with it and replant elsewhere. This article should help you as well: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/garden-how-to/propagation/propgen/dividing-plants.htm
