I have 2 large Esperanzas that I planted last year. I live in Trinidad, Tx and am moving to Seven Points, Tx. One of them has finished blooming, but the other one started later, so is still in bloom. Can I move them now or should I wait until they freeze back? I will not be selling the house I'm in, right away, so have a little time.

Do you know what zone your new location will be? I would treat it like an ornamental and get it into pots before the first hard freeze.

I'm only moving it about 15 miles and it's in East Texas where it doesn't freeze bad, normally. But, that may be a good idea, thanks.

I read that it should be treated as an annual unless you live in at least 8b region.

I read that, too, but mine wintered last year and are hugh this year, so hopefully they will do that at the new place, since it's just down the road. Thanks, for the help.

I have three Esperanza plants that are two years old that have not bloomed yet this year. The first year they had a lot of blooms. What do I need to do to get them to bloom instead of just staying green?

How much sun do they get and how often do you fertilize?

They are planted in full sun and I fertilize every three months with miracle grow.

hmm, have you considered not using miracle grow, and actually feeding the soil to make a healthier, stronger plant? You are over fertilizing, IMO, and it is producing more leaves but fewer blooms. Are you open to going organic, cause that's the advise I can give you here..on this organic website.

We do use organic on our yard. I will give it a try on our plants and flowers. Thanks.
