Moving an established wax begonia?

I have had a wax begonia for somewhere over a year. I think it was planted in a spot where it gets too much full sun. Whatever I did wrong with it, it seems to have just sat still since I planted it. Would it be ok to take it out of the ground and move it to another spot?

You shouldn't have a bit of trouble with it if you move it where it gets a little shade. Yours looks like a lot of the ones around here in public displays--'way too much sun and just sitting there all hunkered down. Looks healthy tho', which is not true of a lot of the local ones, so I wouldn't expect you to have a problem. Just be sure it doesn't get too much water; they hate wet feet.

Thanks Greenelbows. I moved it to a spot where it would receive morning sun only. Waiting to see it spring up.
