I moved some Helen Collingswood in December (North New Jersey, 
pushing the limits of zone 6) and they grew OK. No blooms in the 
spring, but they did not die. (absolutely gorgeous the second year). 
It probably depends alot on the cultivar; is it a fussy rot-prone 
wimpy thing? Then don't do it. An older, tougher, tried-and-true? 
then maybe.  I think it is still 'chancey', and one should consider 
what are the alternatives: 
I would say its better than just keeping the rhizome out of the 
ground all winter. Or, you could just pot it up, and keep it in an 
unheated garage, and plant in the spring.
