I bought the above about 5 years ago and like it as a very colourful foliage plant. it is going an amazing colour of red now just before leaf fall. It has somewhat outgrown it's allotted space and while I could prune it I can afford to move it somewhere else with more room for it to grow. I normally move deciduous shrubs in early Spring as winters here can be a bit severe and I am never that keen to move things just before winter sets in. However, the weather here is still quite decent and soil pretty dry which makes transplanting easier. Has anybody transplanted Physocarpus and if so when? The shrub is about 5ft tall, I suppose I would be best to prune some off it which will mean loosing the flowers for next season but perhaps wise. It is not a shrub I have lots of experience of, Appears pretty tough but anybody's 1st hand knowledge would be useful thanks.
