Help me identify this plant It's lovely and been a resident longer than me, but it's getting crushed by other plants. I'm considering moving or splitting it. What do you think?

@rusty a fabulous plant, apparently easy to split, so my Mum says but I've never been brave enough to try 😀

I might wait until it's finished flowering and then give it the division treatment. Thanks for the advice @hlt 👍
