Dividing Louisiana's

Hi everyone and anyone!  Our snow is finally gone here in Northern MI.  I discovered a dead robin . . . probably due to the really late 18 inches of snow we got 2 weeks ago.  I don't think he found enough food through the snow! Okay, on to the pertinent question.  I have a whiskey-barrel water garden, with a "Black Gamecock" Louisiana iris in it.  I move the garden into my barn each winter to keep it from freezing too hard.  Last year it nearly septupled in size, and I would like to divide it now before it grows even more!  (It is 2 inches over the sides of it's pot.)  Should I wait until after bloom to divide it, or is it safe to cut it up now and transplant into my real garden?  The green growth is only 1 1/2 inches tall right now.   Thankyou,Bo
