White tupelo is supposed to be difficult to transplant because of its taproot, but plants in containers are more likely to survive than bare root plants. You may want to ask advice of an extension agent (through your local university) or someone at the nursery where you obtained them. Spring is supposed to be the better season to plant them. Here is some more information that may help with site selection:
