We have moved into a new (to us) house with a wooded lot. The previous owner loved her yard, but I don’t recognize a lot of what is here.

These blue flowers are scattered and look like volunteers. What are they? Can I move them together to have a group of them?

    Possibly Limestone petunia, Ruellia strepens. Compare with this site
    According to the same site it is a perennial.If it is Ruellia strepens that should make moving them to a mass planting practical. Time of year to move them I would say is late winter to early spring.
