We have a plant that we would like to move to a different place in our yard. Can we transplant it and, if so, when is the best time of year to do this? We live in eastern Iowa. Thank you.

While I would recommend transplanting in fall or even spring, as long as you provide them with adequate water while they are establishing themselves, you can do so now. It also helps to make certain that all the roots are included when lifting and sometimes pruning them back will help alleviate transplant shock as well.
