Sillee me. Too much haste. Yes they do look like shastas. (you all spotted my deliberate mistake ). So. Divide them.

Jetmorgan, Chelsea chop is when vigorous potentially leggy,late summer plants are cut back to,produce sturdier growth....so called because this is associated with Chelsea show times. Late or mid summer chop is for plants that flower all summer but wane a little now. Cutting back now energises the plants to produce fresh foliage and buds to flower into autumn. Actually I do that to shastas too....just done .
