It looks like Hebe Caledonia, but there are so many different types this is just a shot in the dark.

might be worth a look at some pictures of this type.

Daffodil blooms

Have you had a good look at the blooms? Have they got tiny black insects on them?

Sometimes you get a thrip on a daffodil bloom which will decimate the bloom.

Charlotte pots are second earlies so you could wait a bit, although the shots are long enough.

If you live up north or Scotland I would wait, the ground will still be quite cold.

Can't think of any reason not to especially as it's still quite young, try and get as much rootball as you can and don't forget to keep it watered especially the first year you move it.

I have never looked closely at Berberis but having seen your pictures I will now do so, it is really beautiful and like you pointed out just like small daffodil blooms.
