I have some tall weed looking flowers, someone told me they were mexican heather. I'm not sure but they lose their flowers almost daily, and seem to be spreading over a big area. i want to move them to another area of the yard. Will this kill them??

Mexican heather (Cuphea hyssopifolia) thrives in hot humid climates and can become weedy if not pruned back each spring. You can safely move your plants without fear of killing them. They should bounce back after a few weeks of adjustment after the move.

Best wishes with your garden!
