Plant ID

Hi all,

Can anyone ID the following plant? My grandmother has recently passed away so we are moving it from her rental property.

She also has numerous Lilly of the valley's. Will they relocate okay?

Thanks in advance.

    Japanese azalea?

    Can't see clearly enough but best guess is an Azalea.  If so, it will need re-planting into acid soil or ericaceous compost if you are going to lift and pot it.
    Lily of the valley is one of those plants that you can never be sure will take when moved.  They are usually rampant when happy or just die if not, so a little 'suck it and see' with those I'm afraid.
    A trowel in the hand is worth a thousand lost under a bush.

    @BobTheGardener I'll have to keep my fingers crossed. I know I could get them anywhere but they were brought over from a relative in France so they're a tad sentimental. Hopefully if they survived the ferry crossing they'll manage the short drive to my house 🤞

    @Hostafan1 @BobTheGardener Ah that's perfect if they are azalea I have acid soil with a different type of azalea' thriving.

    Our hand is a bit forced with the timing of relocation as it's now or never 🤷‍♂️
