Q.Can I relocate my Hibiscus plants?

Zone 9b on the edge of 9a | mtubbesing added on November 1, 2014 | Answered

I have 2 Hibiscus plants. They are both planted in the ground. I don’t like the location they are in and want to move them. One is about 7 feet tall and 4 feet wide, the other one is only about 2 feet tall.

Yes, you can dig them up and move them. You want to think about the optimum time of year for moving, and minimizing the shock of transplant that they go through.
