Transplanting a flowering quince

I have a flowering quince in my yard, and have read that they transplant well. It was planted right nesx to another bush, and they are starting to grow into one another, and it doesn't look good at all. I would like to move the quince to another part of my yard. They bloom in early spring, so it's already done that. Should I move it now while it still has a chance to take root again before the colder weather comes, or should I wait for another time of the year? Also, what is the best way to move it?

Flowering quince typically transplants well preferably when dormant. You will want a sunny location and lots of room. Most flowering quince grow 4 to 8 feet tall and spread 6 to 10 feet. You must control the suckers or it will become a thicket.

Thank you so much! I had no idea that they would get so big! The one I have is really close to the ground, but it's also very crowded next to another tree. They are beautiful, but I definately don't want a thicket growing.
