I have a question regarding this plant and it applies to others as well.
I just moved into a house where there are 3 of these plants that have been sheared into boxes their entire life. I want to transplant them away from the border of the house. QUESTION: I was wondering if these plants will be able to grow into their natural habit again in a timely manner. Is there some type of further pruning that can speed this up or should I just scrap the bushes?

I live in Memphis, TN
