Can I successfully do this at this time of year? If so do I cut stems back?

They are hard to kill. I have transplanted yellow twigs in March, before they leaf out. I cut the branches down to a few inches first. You will sacrifice flowering for the next season. Good luck

I moved one of my Arctic Fire in about 5 minutes last week. No cutting back of branches.

if you figure out how to kill it.. let us know ...

which also means.. do it with vigor.. and little care .... as to how it feels about it ...

its early in the morn ... but doesnt this thing root freely ??? .. and if it does... root some now ... and kill momma in spring ... many things can be winter rooted.. in damp media.. in a gallon pot ... do ten 6 inch sticks.. you will probably get a couple ... if i am thinking about the right plant ...

you might also find some suckers ....


ps: i had this long ago ... of the 1650 potted plants i took with me when i moved.. i left this behind ... does this really make you so happy.. its worth moving???? .. i voted no ..
