Transplanting 3 y.o. Rose of Sharon

Realist1216August 15, 2005

I want to move a three year old Rose of Sharon to a location where it will receive more sun. A friend who is an arborist said to move in fall after finished blooming and leaves start to fall.

Is this the correct advice?? DO NOT WANT TO LOSE THIS SHRUB! Thanks for advice.

That's what I'm planning on doing. Transplant after bloom.

That's probably very good advice because I just moved 3 of them last week and they're looking bad. They have drooping leaves that are now turning yellow. I'm thinking they're probably not going to make it.
