You state to mark the north side of the plant. Which way should the plant face when transplanting? North, south, east or west? I am in zone 9A.

It can face however it looks best. I believe tying yarn to the northern branch tip is only so your shrub will be sitting straight up in the new hole. I take it to mean the top of the shrub, not facing a certain way. Sometimes with shrubs its hard to get them upright in the new planting hole. They look like they are leaning on one side.
