Red hot poker doesn't really like to be divided, but you can separate the offshoots that grow and replant them. If you must divide the whole plant, wait till spring and divide it into sections, with a good rootball for each section. It may be 2 to 3 years before the new plants bloom.

Here is info on how to care for your plant right now.
