Hi, I'M trying to identify the attached plant, its growing all over my property, I live on Long Island. I don't plant these and they are growing everywhere. I would like to know what this plant is and if its to late in the season to transplant them to other areas of my home.

thanks

It looks like "burning Bush" that turns a brilliant red in the Fall...It is a type of euonymous that is very common in our tri-state area (PA, NY, NJ)...There are dwarf bush varieties and rather larger almost small tree varieties...
Late FALL to early SPRING when they are not in leaf is the best time to transplant them...The 90+ degree days we have already had has forced leaf prodution to earlier than usual...
You could dig some out now making sure you get a good amount of the roots and soil together in the transplant rootball...
"Nothing ventured - Nothing gained" + you get the plants for free$$$...Do it now on some of them to see how it works out...
Good luck...

i can answer most questions pertaining to general plant identification. if you e-mail digital pictures to me i can sight ID most plants sold at garden centers. i owned & operated a garden center/landscape company for 20+ years in NJ, selling all kinds of plants (deciduous, evergreen, annual, perennial, tropical, etc.).
