That's funny, Robin. You're only about half a degree east of me! But you're
also far to the north of me, so that doesn't count. 

I once had one Fritillaria imperialis which lived in my garden for about
twenty years. For the first ten or so it did not bloom, but then it began to
bloom and bloomed until it died. It too grew in a shaded site. 

But I'm really impressed that your plant is one of the yellow ones! For me
they have been even more touchy than the others. And you've successfully
moved them - great.
