Q.

butterfly bush

Zone Zone 8, southeast Michigan | Annetta48 added on October 2, 2016 | Answered

A butterfly bush has made a home in the center of one of my larger flower beds. When it came up last year, I recognized the leaves (I'd had one for many years but it died.) so I let it grow. To my surprise, it has shot up 6 feet this summer. Well, of course, this is not acceptable and I need to move it. When and how can I safely transplant it to a more appropriate place? I will try to attach photos but I'm not always successful.
