[gardeners] Late(?) Transplants

While working in one of my perennial beds yesterday,
I found some Russian Sage that had been overgrown
by crocosmia.  I dug out some of both, and separated
the corcosmia corms form the sage roots.  What I was left
with was basically bare-root pieces of Russian Sage, which
I planted.  Will these do OK?  Would I have done better
to just leave it alone?

I also found a coneflower trying to grow in the shade in the
midst of daylilies.  I dug the coneflower up and divided it,
since it seemed to have basically formed two small clumps,
and transplanted both clumps.  Should I cut these back?
They're both pretty leggy.
