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
I was amazed at the packaging. Beautiful healthy young trees, around 33" tall. I would highly recommend this nursery to anyone.
I bought four of these at different times. The first two are doing terrible and one I think is dead now, the other two are doing great. All of them were put in pots to be planted later. The first two I bought cannot handle extreme weather and I put them in very large pots, especially compared to what they came in. They definitely don’t like full sun. This is a bummer.

We planted it a month or so ago and watered daily. Now that the cold is setting in, will water less if any time at all. I love the Emerald Green. It is so pretty and smells so earthy! I cannot wait until spring to see how it begins to grow. I buy all my plants and shrubs from Great Garden Plants and have always had a great experience with the company.
Love them! Will be ordering more in the spring.
We ordered 18 of these. They arrived a few days late, but were in great shape. After we planted them, several began to turn brown. We’ve done everything as directed, so we’re hoping they pull through. We have clay soil and these shrubs are supposed to do well in that. We’ll see what happens, they do come with a 60 day guarantee.
