What do you know about Phryma leptostachya L. /Lopseed?

I recently discovered that I have one of these beauties growing in my front yard....but it's right in the path of some new landscaping that is scheduled to begin soon. I'd like to move the plant to a permanent home in my side yard. I'm guessing this is not the ideal time to move...but if I water it well after moving and get as much of the existing soil/roots around it, do you think it will survive? What else cn you tell me about this plant?

Thanks!

Native plant to eastern North American and on the endangered list in the state of Maine. It is not a showy plant but anything with pinkish flowers that blooms in June/July in the woods is welcome.

Hope yours survived the transplant, it needs shade and moist soil.
