Q.Transplanting a Clematis

Anonymous added on May 24, 2011 | Answered

I have a Duchess of Windsor Clematis that I would like to transplant. It has not started to bloom, although it does have buds on it. We live on the coast in Ct. Is it too late to do this?

You can transplant now, but if you do, it most likely will not bloom this year. Moving is hard on a plant and it will sacrifice its blooms in order to focus on recovering from being moved. You might be better transplanting in fall. The plant should recover enough by the next year to bloom for you.
