Need to relocate Hydrangea anomala

Belfast, ME

Need to relocate several Hydrangea anomala which in my ignorance I planted in sites that are to dry, hot and windy. Even tho I live in coastal Maine (z5) the top of a stone walls facing howling prevailing wind and sun was a really bad idea! They have been soldiering on bravely for 4-5 years but remain quite dwarf (3 ft wide 2 ft high) tho' green and flowering. To relocate them this fall, would root pruning them now, with extra watering inside the pruning ring , help? Any suggestions very welcome. Rather not kill them out right.....

Many thanks

Hi Mary,

I would leave them where they are and move them in the spring before the leaf out.
