I had a big clump of H. coccineus in the garden which I dug up to 
transplant.  The clump broke into about 4 pieces.  I just planted them 
where I wanted to and was worried I might lose them.

In fact they never looked back, just took off and throve.

When I mentioned that on Facebook, James Shields commented that any he 
transplanted when dormant, died, that they like being transplanted in 
full growth.
