It is possible to divide Dicentra spectabilis, however early spring or fall would be the preferred times to do it. (I did find a reference indicating it could be done just as it goes dormant in the summer, however I have not tried that myself.) Keep in mind that the roots are deep and also brittle when you dig your divisions.
