Are these bushes worth moving? - Knowledgebase Question

Here is a bed I thought I had laid out perfectly, now I'm not to sure. Those rhodos are an English Roseum/Roseum Elegans. There are suppose to grow and provide buffer to the window, I keep feeling like they are too far away, both bushes were planted last year, but growing well. Is it worth moving them this fall to adjust their positioning to bring them closer to the house?

Rhododendron Roseum Elegans is a moderate grower, reaching 6 to 8 ft. tall and wide at maturity. I wouldn't move them closer to the house. I think they are perfectly situated and in another 3-4 years they will nealy double in size. If they are too close to the house they will impede air circulation and could damage the house during a wind storm. I'd just leave them - they are beautiful rhodies!
