double-flowered bloodroot

double-flowered bloodroot

I have a rather well established patch of double-flowered bloodroot in a small garden in front of my front porch where I want to plant 3 dwarf evergreen shrubs. The bloodroot is bunched together close to the porch but it is only on one side. I want to keep the bloodroot basically where it is but move about half of it to the right so it will be evenly distributed along the front of the porch ... at the same time making room to place the shrubs in front of it. My question is: Can I cut into, and dig up, half of the bloodroot in one big clump and shift it over to the right without damaging all of it?
