Moving Turks Cap

lace(z9TX)August 15, 2005

I have this turks cap (malvaviscus drummondii) growing wild just outside my privacy fence in an alley. I would love to move it to a special place in the yard. Is it okey to move it now or should I wait till fall? Took me awhile to figure out what it was although I am told they grow wild here in texas....such a pretty plant with interesting flowers. Thank you for anything you can tell me.

I'd wait until fall. Everything transplants better when it's cooler. Less stress on the plant. In the meantime, try to root some cuttings.
