I need to move the following items to new places in my garden:

Camilla japonica Kramer's Supreme; aster purple dome; rudbeckia goldsturm; hydrangea petiolaris; lilac palibin.

Would you let me know when the best time is --for the plants--to move them?

Thank you for your help.

Fall is just around the corner, so wait until late September or early October to dig and move your plants. It's less stressful to plants to be moved when weather is cool, rainfall abundant and plant growth has naturally slowed down. After replanting water well to settle the soil. By next spring everything should be well established and ready to grow again.
