    Thank you. Can it be moved or replanted for next year?  
    Just put a garage up and it’s in the  path for the car..

    Yes - it grows from a bulb.  You may need to dig down quite a long way to find it!  They are uncommon native plants which like damp soil, and you can naturalise them in grass like daffodils if you want.
