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
The plants were a nice dize and very healthy upon arrival. They are thriving despite the heat wave. I'll look forward to blooms next year.
Nice looking plants
Wish I had gotten a more mature plant—one received was very small. I’ve now planted it out and hoping it will survive and grow.
Hello! Thank you for leaving us feedback. We do ship young plants with well established root systems. It's hard to say for certain why you aren't seeing growth, since so many factors - like weather, soil type, watering, and fertilizing all come into play. Perhaps you're familiar with the old saying about plants: first year sleep, second year creep, third year leap. This applies to plants in the garden center as well as plants you purchase online. They generally spend their first year growing roots in their new home, the second year they have more energy to put into growth, and the third year, they are growing and flowering vigorously. Happy Gardening!
They’re off to a very slow start. We will see what happens
