What plants can we move now and what should wait?
The best rule of thumb for moving plants in winter is this: if your plant thrives in the heat, it may not want to be messed with in the cold. Some examples would be yellow bells, lantana, rosemary, plumbago and any plant that is native to hotter, drier areas. Better to wait until last frost in March or early April.
For herbaceous perennial salvias (that die to the ground in winter) move their rosettes after last frost.
In fall and winter, we don’t want to move tropical plants (including shrubs like oleander and Pride of Barbados) or any plant that needs protection in winter. Wait to move those after any chance of frost is over in spring.
Wait until April or later to move succulents, cactus and grasses.
TO MOVE IN WINTER: Winter IS the best time to move trees, evergreen shrubs, roses and native dormant perennials like turks cap, rock rose, asters, coneflowers, firebush (Hamelia patens), flame acanthus, mistflower of all varieties, liriope and other evergreen groundcovers.
