Quickfire

Gardening question. So, one of my favorite hydrangeas, Quickfire, is now totally shaded out by the growing redbud tree (which is quite magnificent these days). It’s living, but struggling — it doesn’t get any rainwater now, and even though it’s a light shade shrub, it’s heavily shaded now.

Do you think I can dig it up and pull it forward? I’m thinking if it were maybe three feet towards the sidewalk, that’d get it out from under the redbud, and let it thrive again. I’ve never tried moving such a large shrub, though.

(In some sense, I suppose I have little to lose other than effort, because it’s REALLY not happy there now.)
