You can kill this easily if you pamper it. Too much water and fertilizer does it in within a couple of years.

It won't die in light shade, but it leans towards the sun and doesn't bloom. Give it full sun and minimal water.

We have a couple of these at the front of our house but we also have a tree there which gives the plant too much shade. These were already here when we moved in. Can you dig them up and plant elsewhere? Or are they not easily to transplant?

Hammerhugger ... I don't know if they can be transplanted.
