Do you mean Dragon flower (Dracunculus vulgaris, AKA: Voodoo lily) or Dragon flower (Physostegia virginiana, AKA: Obedient plant, False dragonhead)? These are two different plants. The first is a bulb that transplants easily by simply digging up the plants or bulbs in spring or fall and replanting elsewhere. This article has more information about this plant:https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/houseplants/voodoo-lily/voodoo-lily-information.htm

The other one is a perennial with spikes of white, lavender, or pink blooms. The entire clump can be dug up and moved in spring or fall, depending on where you live. Here is more info: http://gardening.about.com/od/plantprofile1/p/Obedient_Plant.htm

Beware, as both of these plants can be vigorous spreaders and self-seed readily.
