Notes:

Any idea what this is? It is really aggressive and hardy. I live in Coweta County, GA and this plant successfully overwintered in the garden and, in fact, had those purple flowers all winter! We want to move it but are unsure of how and when.
Thanks

    Plants details are a bit blurry. I’m guessing maybe a cultivar in the Matthiola genus (stock), possible Matthiola incana? Check it out and see if you have a match. Sorry, I don’t have any experience in relocating stock. Although whenever I’m moving a plant. I would do it in the late afternoon/early evening and try to get as much of the plant’s roots ball as I can. According to sources, you could easily starting them from seeds. The link included below for commercial program, but the tips for seeds propagation method are helpful . Best wishes!

    Perhaps something in the wallflowers might be a better fit. Check out the shrubby wallflower Erysimum x linifolium Bowles’ Mauve’ from the included link below. Best wishes!
