I have a Hardy Hibiscus that is several years old that will possibly be in the way when I have my new house put in. I hate to lose it, but I'm unsure if I can transplant it or at least save part of it. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.

Hibiscus moscheutos plants resent any disturbance to their root system so be extremely careful, soak the soil thoroughly and dig wide before attempting to transplant your Hibiscus.

I was reading info from the link you gave me.. it said propagating with tip cuttings...? So I can do that to get new plants going?

Yeah, I did.. but I don't have the stuff to do it right now.. the rooting hormone and the sterile material to put it in. Will have to wait for now. But thanks for the info.
