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
Plants arrived in excellent shape and have been great in the flower bed. Great place to get plants.
I have buds but no flowers yet. I hope it looks as nice as the pictures
I couldn’t find these coneflowers anywhere locally and discovered your awesome website which is extremely easy to use. My flowers arrived on time and were not the least bit stressed. They also were packed tightly and I already have big buds. Looking forward to more.
My plants are still establishing roots, but they are doing well. They arrived quickly and carefully packaged. I am excited to see the blooms next season.
I think, if I can baby these plants until fall, hopefully they will survive. Lesson learned not to order plants for Utah after May. Just way too hot for them to stay alive. I’ve had 1 flower on the 4 plants and it was amazing. For other orders, I’ve emailed customer service. They are wonderful to work with. I will only order online plants through Great garden Plants.
