Rhododendron Transplant Time

Anonymous added on June 6, 2011 | Answered

I have a rhododendron that is being crowded out by a pine tree I have next to it, so I'd like to transplant it to a better spot. I live in the northeast and want to know when is the best time for me to transplant it. I'm guessing the fall, but is there a chance I could transplant it after it's finished flowering?

In most climates, the best time to transplant rhododendrons is in early spring while the plant is still dormant and just prior to flowering. In warm climates, transplant them in late fall.
