Hello. Thanks for reading this.

I planted some Aquilegia three years ago in both sunny and partially shaded areas. Those in the sun have not done as well and I would like to move them to the partial shade. Is this OK at this time of year?
Thanks again. Stay healthy.

It isn't ideal... But I have moved it when in bloom successfully...
For me, It was either move or lose.

In your shoes where it isn't in danger of being destroyed by heavy equipment or other landscape menaces, I would prefer to work up a new seed bed, and collect the seeds when ripe... and scatter them over the new bed.

Columbine grow very well from a seed planting.
