: : : I planted lirope earlier in the spring. It has rooted and come up beautifully. The problem is I now want to move them to a new location. Will I kill them if I move them now? How do I move them so they don't die?

: : Lirope are quite hardy. Water them the day before and dig and transplant. Fall is a great time to transplant.

Hi Kathie,

Your message is blank, but I do see the question in the heading. Yes, lirope can take VERY cold temperatures and is hardy to zone 6, which is listed as to minus 10*. It will get to about 6* here tonight and the lirope will survive and stay evergreen. In the spring before new growth starts (about the first two weeks of March), cut it to the ground. There will be new leaves in about 3 weeks.

Any more questions, just let me know.
Newt
