Moving russian sage

Hello, I am in zone 5. My Russian Sage is 3-4 ft tall. I want to remove all my things and rototiller the area and then put put back selected things. Will the Russian Sage hold up to the uprooting it and then putting it back in after new garden is loosened? Thank you Amanda

The best time to move Russian sage is in the early spring  when it's just breaking dormancy. You could try to move it this fall after it goes dormant, but it might not do as well.
