If you can correctly ID it then it can be moved.

No, I can correctly say that the true Allium unifolium is a large flowered pink species, what is shown here is an unrelated few-flowered white species. Do a quick google check to verify the obvious mis-ID. Then search verifiable web sites on North American Allium species, I can't do the work for you, but you should try to do it. Done.

What is shown here is white-flowered Allium triquetum, has nothing to do with pink Allium unifolium.
