Plant spacing is based on the ultimate width of the plants. This figure is normally given as a range; for example, 3-5’. If you live in a cold climate and/or want plants to fill in more quickly, plan to space at the shorter end of the range. If you live in a warm climate, are on a limited budget, or are willing to wait longer for plants to touch, use the higher end of the range. Using the larger number is recommended when calculating distance from a building or structure. There’s really no such thing as "maximum spacing": if you don’t want your plants to touch, you can space them as far apart as you’d like. All plant spacing is calculated on center, or in other words, the centers of the plants are spaced one half of their eventual width apart:
Unless you are planting in a straight line, as you might for hedges or edging, space your plants in a staggered or zig-zag pattern for a more interesting and naturalistic look:

Arrives as young plant
The plant didn't make it through the winter. It lost its leaves and now is a dried out set of twigs, despite meticulous care. Meanwhile, Berry Poppins is doing spectacularly. Hoping there is a guarantee on Mr Poppins.

Planted as directed and looking good.
I’m extremely satisfied with my Mr Poppins Holly. I planted it as soon as I got it and carefully followed the instructions and it’s doing very well.
Quality plants arrived perfectly! That packaging was impressive well thought out! And I love your selection of special varieties!
