I feel compelled to answer this since my name is Sharon! ;)
It is best to plan on transplanting a rose of Sharon shrub in autumn. Moving the shrubs in the fall gives them all winter and spring to establish a strong root system before their flowering period. It is also possible to transplant in spring.
- Remove all grass & weeks from the new planting location.
- When you are done preparing the soil, dig a planting hole. Make it twice as big as you expect the shrub’s root ball to be.
- In November, it is rose of Sharon transplanting time. If the plant is very big, trim it back to make transplanting a rose of Sharon easier. You can also tie up the lower branches if you are afraid you will injure them.
- Gently dig around the plant’s roots and try to keep as many of them as you can in the root ball.
- Lift out the root ball carefully. Place the plant in its new planting hole so that it is sitting at the same depth as it was in the prior planting location.
- Pat extracted earth around the sides of the root ball, then water well.

This can only be done in the spring and fall. . so really it is too late to do this now. I would prepare the place where you want to put them, and when it is that time of the yr., dig the hole, will it with water, and then use a shovel, and cut this where you want to dig it, (split it in half, or keep it whole, depending on how large it is now) and then dig it up, and transplant. Use good soil, and put the GOOD SOIL around the base of it, and then put leaves on top of it., then put just a little more soil over the leaves, to keep them down. This is like added natural fertilizer. There will be no more problems, for nature will take over. This is one of our favorite flowers, for there is such a variety of colors, and we love them all. I hope this helps, best wishes, J.
