As long as the ground isn't frozen it's okay to plant or transplant shrubs. Usually plants that have the winter to establish themselves go through less shock than plants that are put into new locations in the spring.

When planting, make sure the hole is deep enough and wide enough to accomodate the roots after you fan them out in their natural growth pattern. Replace the soil around the roots and water the plant well.
