Answer: Hardy hibiscus (Hibiscus syriacus) usually transplant fairly well, so while very early spring is a good time to transplant, it can also be done in the fall. Water the plant well the day before hand, dig it up with as large a root ball as you can manage, and plant immediately into an already-prepared spot. (You may need help -- roots can be very heavy.) Cut the shrub back to compensate for root loss, water it in well, and mulch. Make sure it receives adequate moisture up until the ground freezes and again through next summer.
