Hi,
I have access to a ranch with lots of great hard chaparral shrubs and was hoping to transplant a few to my yard as xeric landscaping.

Is it possible to transplant an 8'-10' tall manzanita, 6'-8' tall wild lilac, etc.? Or would they die from the process?

Any references you can recommend would be appreciated.

Thanks,
Kyler

Most chaparral shrubs don't transplant well. It would be better to take cuttings of the manzanitas and seed from the ceanothus and start new plants.
