This is the 3rd summer for my plant. It is 3' high and 3' wide. I want to transplant it. Does it transplant well? Also should I cut back the stems after winter especially if I transplant? If so, when? Before or after transplanting?

You can prune your Russian sage down to about 12" above soil level each winter or early spring to keep it smaller and more compact. If you want to move it, go ahead and prune it first, then dig and transplant your shrub. Best wishes with your project.
