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
As advertised. Vigorous growth and 99.9% shipping to yard survival rate.
We look forward to it taking over as much of a problem area as it will.
Will probably buy more next year.
This invasive species should NOT be sold by any reputable grower. I'm trying to eradicate it in my yard in MA and I see it in the local conservation land. It is quite vigorous and will quickly overtake native ground species. Please consider removing this item from your inventory
Hi Martin, you are correct in that Wintercreeper is vigorous and can quickly take over native ground species. We follow all USDA restrictions and do not ship to restricted states. I'm sorry that you have had trouble with Wintercreeper in your garden. If you'd like to remove it from your garden, our horticulture expert recommends doing so in small batches by cutting back the foliage and raking out the roots. Happy Gardening!
prohibited in ny state because invasive,shouldnot be sold
Hello! You are correct in that Wintercreeper is invasive in New York. We follow all USDA restrictions and do not ship Wintercreeper to New York. If you are interested in native plants, you can shop the collection here: https://www.greatgardenplants.com/collections/native
I would give it a negative review if it were possible. This terribly invasive plant has destroyed everything in my yard. It's killing trees and has killed my entire lawn. I've fought it for 20 years unsuccessfully. I've been told repeatedly by arborists that the only way to kill it is by using commercial chemicals that will kill everything, including all plants, worms, bugs, birds and other small animals. It would also sicken my cat. I am unable to have a vegetable garden or nice flower beds because of this plant. It is horrible. Buying and planting it is only spreading this issue. BTW - I'm in Ohio
Hi Amy, I'm sorry that you've had trouble with Wintercreeper in your garden. It doesn't look like you purchased the plants from us. If you'd like to remove it from your garden, our horticulture expert recommends doing so in small batches by cutting back the foliage and raking out the roots. She just removed some from her garden as well!
The wintercreeper plants arrived safely - I really appreciated the way they were packed, including the instructions for handling after they arrived. The plants were very healthy looking, fuller than anticipated. They are thriving now and I can't wait for them to fill in the space where planted. The quality of the plants and being able to plan your ship date is a plus! I will consider ordering other plants in the future. Thank you!
