I live in the Prairies ( Zone 2-2b) and I've been moving my perennials at this time of the year. So far I have not lost any yet in the spring. But if you are moving a plant that you would hate to lose you better move it in the spring. Like I will never move my Clematis which had been giving me lots and lots of flowers for 4- years now because i would hate to start all over again. Clematis as you know does not flower until they are at least 2 yrs. old. Hope this helps!

I moved some iris, columbine, violets and a new daisy seedling this weekend - not the best time mind you - it was a hot one! However, I couldn't wait until spring, as I'd have forgotten where everything was. I waited until evening before I moved them and the next day I put lawnchairs in front of my new transplants to give them a break from the sun- and watered them a lot. So far so good!
