Hedychium greenii – am I too late?

Hedychium greenii - am I too late to head out into the potting shed and dig up the rhizomes of her? it's Feb in Oregon and the day temps are around 35-45. I've had her for 5 plus years, she winters in the potting shed, first bloom was this year. Never cut her down either, she stayed leafed out all year round. What to do? I loved the blooms this year... Help Doreen with tropicals in Oregon Thanks!

If it normally winters in the shed, do you need to dig up the rhizomes? Plus it's almost spring. The article below says this bulb should be separated and planted in early spring, so I would wait till then.
