    first find out if it is legal to do that. Find out if they are a bulb or seed flower. If bulb and it's legal mark the spot and dig it up in the fall. If propagates by seed - watch until it makes seeds - harvest them and plant some in the fall -make sure you cover them with leaves for winter and plant some in spring when danger of frost is past. good luck

    Mags is right about checking to see if it is legal. If so, there are some privately licensed growers who have seeds, transplants, etc, but be sure they are licensed and they list their license ID. Purchase only from reputable growers to protect our natural flora.

    I think it is legal to dig up any flower that is on property that is going to be bulldozed for housing construction. That was what I was told by a friend, but he wasn't a lawyer.
