Too Late to Transplant Limelight Hydrangea?

westy1941(Boulder County, CO)October 15, 2008

I'm in Chicagoland 'burbs - Zone 5. Usually our first frost is around Oct 15 but not hard freeze until around Thanksgiving if we're lucky. Is it too late to move a Limelight Hydrangea that is in the wrong place? It's three years old and about 4 ft high by 4 feet wide now. I hack it back in Spring to 1/3 the size. It's just not getting enough sun to flower much.

Maybe early Spring is better - hate to lose it.

Thanks for any ideas,

Fall is an excellent time to transplant trees and shrubs. Any time up until the ground freezes.
