|Peonies should not be moved until after the first frost kills back the tops of the plants (which signals the plant to go into dormancy). Once it is dormant you can dig and transplant it. Clematis can be moved after it has finished flowering. Fall is best if you want to avoid transplant shock. Plants are not growing actively in the fall and don't seem to mind being moved at that time. Best wishes with your landscape!
