Will the peonie live if you dig up the bush or separate it and move to new location? Is this the right time?

On plant Peonies



According to University of Ct Ag Center, peonies can be transplanted in the fall. It might be different if you live in a different zone.

Paeonies are best moved when they are dormant. As they start into growth very early in the year, the best time to do it is immediately after leaf fall. I moved both tree and herbaceous paeonies last Novemeber; the tree paeonies have already flowered and several of the others are carrying flower buds too. Be careful not to plant the herbaceous ones too deeply; the buds should be just above soil level
