Hi, I bought a lovely varicoloured shrub(green with brownish/red tipped leaves) in Aldi some months back and planted it in a very large square tub, label said shade or full shade and I have kept it in shade, it appeared to thrive for the first month or two but now has stopped growing tho still looks healthy enough. My question is,can I transplant into ground from tub or would disturbing it kill it and if I can when would be right time to do so. I'm almost certain its name started with P and it's fairly common as I've seen it in carpark landscaping all over. Advice,anyone?
