Have to dig up rhodie now
I am having my patio and the wall of my raised garden rebuilt. In order to do the work, I have to dig out everything in the raised bed, including a lovely rhododendren. I know this is not the best time of year to do this, but I have no choice.
It isn't terribly tall -- probably five feet. I don't know what kind it is except that it gets purple flowers in early spring. It's in a wonderful spot and I would like to replant it there.
Is there any chance that it will survive being dug up, out of the ground for a week or more and then replanted? Any tips that might help it survive?
I live just outside of Philadelphia and we are a couple months away from any frost.
