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 have two at our vacation home also in the mountains. I was so happy to find this plant for our new house. Planted in 2022. There were no blooms but that did not surprise me. Doing very well this year when I can keep the deer away. They enjoy "pruning" the tasty plants in the garden.
The plant looked healthy and vibrant upon arrival. It is planted to receive lots of sun (as recommended) and doing well with watering 2 times per week.
I received 5 Wine & Roses Weigela plants. All looked good for the first week or two but then one of them had about 1/2 of its' leaves fall off. A few days after that, It apparently eaten down to the ground. Now a second plant has leaves dropped on the ground. Are these plant particularly attractive to rabbits? Does dropping leaves mean that they need water or are getting too much water?
Thank you for contacting us. Please email pictures of any plant in question to email@example.com, making sure to put your order number and name in the subject line so that we may provide the best assistance possible.
I had purchased a few plants from Great Garden Plants for myself in zone 5a and have been extremely happy with the promptness of service and healthy condition of the plants upon arrival. These plants were well packed.
Since being pleased with the plants purchased for myself, I decidesd to purchase a Weigela for a housewarming gift for a friend in zone 7.
Within a few days, the plant arrived there in very good condition and I was emailed a photo of the Weigela with a thank you note.
I will continue to do business with Great Garden Plants....wonderful job folks!
Plants are thriving. Thxs.
