Transplanting Established Butterfly Bush

Anonymous added on August 18, 2015 | Answered

I have a butterfly bush I had planted in the wrong location about 4-5 yrs ago. I would like to move it but the roots are huge. Can I cut off part of the root without doing damage to the plant? It's planted near our cellar wall and we're afraid it's going to crack the foundation.

I would wait until this fall to move the plant.

Here is a link with information on moving your plant.
