The Q&A Archives: Butterfly bush

Question: I have a large butterfly bush that I would like to move. When and how is the best way and time to trim and move this plant.
Thank you

Answer: I'd wait until late winter (Feb. or even March) when the shrub is dormant, reduce the size by about half, then dig and replant. In the spring it will regrow, replacing the missing branches.
