Moving S. 'Wild Thing'

Two of my three S. 'Wild Thing' came through the winter here in zone 6 (not zone 5 despite the heading above). I want to move it, but I'm a little nervous about it; though I am a very experienced gardener, I know very little about these fussy salvias. Will it move easily?

RE: Moving S. 'Wild Thing'

This is the best time to move them and yes they are very forgiving. Here in zone 7 mine are setting buds and will be just behind Salvia Cherry Queen in first flowers which will open tomorrow. I would also suggest layering them in June since the layered branches are much more likely to survive the winter than older wood clumps.

RE: Moving S. 'Wild Thing'

Thanks for the advice about layering. I took a cutting from S. 'Ultra Violet' last year and it rooted easily.
