Lots of variation between cultivars.  Persian Berry, Pagan Pink, and Dawning
seem to enjoy being left alone forever, just reach in and break out the old
dead rhizomes.  Bengal Tiger and Ebony Dream get stunted and grow on top of
each other, the blooms getting smaller and less frequent by the second or
third year.  Just watch to see how healthy they are; and if you don't dig,
do the best you can to break out the old dead stuff without exposing too
many of the break points to soil (potential entry for "evil spirits" i.e.
infection).
