moving perennials in the summer
I know it's preferable to move and/or divide perennials in the spring and fall, but I was wondering if I could move some during the summer months without too much shock. I've already done all my dividing for the year in the spring. I'm just wanting to move some things around. It's not too hot right now in SWPA.
Do you think some of my Becky Shasta's can handle being moved while blooming? I moved some purple cornflowers a few days ago without their minding at all.
Also, I have some Commelina that just popped up this year. I like it's invasive tendancies for another area of my yard. I'd like to move that right now because I fear that it's going to overtake a rose bush I have that's 10 feet in diameter. I won't be able to weed under. Will the Commelina survive if I move it, or should I just pull it out entirely?
