a. Plants to be rarely if ever transplanted. Some plants, especially if collected from the wild, seldom survive the shock of transplanting. Some plants, like the beeches, must be entirely dormant if they are to be moved successfully. The letter (c) after a name indicates that collected plants move with little or no success; but nursery-grown plants move with fair success.
