    It’s a Piedmont Azalea (Rhododendron canescens)…http://www.wildflower.org/plants/result.php?id_plant=RHCA7 I would dig it up and transplant in the fall, maybe Thanksgiving timeframe. It like acidic, well drained soil, in light shade. If it’s too shady it won’t bloom, if to sunny, it will burn up.
