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:

The Siberian Bugloss is excellent for creating that dense ground cover look when planted with other similar plants. We love the look of our new garden and would definitely buy more!
IN OUR TRAIL GARDEN, JACK IS ON THE RIGHT, AND QUEEN OF HEARTS IS ON THE LEFT. BOTH PLANTED IN MAY 2022, AND THIS MAY BOTH ARE COMING BACK VIGOROUSLY!
They are really lovely in my garden and they really fill in those shady spots.
This plant arrived pretty banged up, may broken stems. I didn't think it would make it but to the contrary, its thriving. I plan to purchase more.
These were growing great, with new growth and all was well. Then, one by one, the plant would wilt and water would not bring it back -- so it would die. Then its neighbor died...and the next...and the next. Each died about 10 to 14 days after the last one died...the invisible invader started in the middle plant and moved on to its neighbor one by one. They were so pretty. Not sure what happened.
My June, Autumn Frost and Mighty Mouse hostas are all doing fine. These were just not meant to be I guess.
