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:

As explained to the rep, plant came too late to plant, so he is overwintering in the breezeway. We shall see if Mr. Poppins pops in spring.

Arrived well wrapped and in great condition. I followed the instructions provided on care of plants that’s been shipped. After a few weeks of planting it, it’s now sprouting new leaves.
Plant doing well. Has put on some new growth.
My Mr. Poppins arrived in very sad shape. When I opened the box, three blackened dry leaves fell out. The 5 remaining leaves didn’t look much better and these too eventually blackened and fell off. No amount of babying could restore it. They were very good about returning my money in a timely manner but I still do ‘t have a male winterberry to plant with the female one.
