I have a plant that has grown in the middle of my garden path. The leaves on my plants have started to turn. Should I wait until September to transplant it?

Bleeding heart should not be cut or moved before it has turned yellow or brown and started to wither away. It is storing food for next year. You can transplant then if it is not too hot (above 90 degrees F [32 C]). September will be cooler but be sure to mark the location in case it completely disappears.
