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:

Planting around the edge of the garden is beautiful. Absolutely love these dianthus. Adds do much color.
They are alive but not thriving. It does not have the same leaf as my other perennial dianthus. The jury is still out on this one.
I bought 6 of these last Autumn (2020) and planted in a narrow bed in the front of the garden in front of my home for a pop of color. I was attracted by the stunning magenta color and the gray/blue/green foliage. They were dormant, so no flowers, but looked healthy and were of reasonable size for a mail order purchase. They looked satisfactory through the Autumn and they survived the nasty North Texas (snowmageddon) winter. Grateful I was patient, because when Spring arrived they really put on a show! Doubled in size and completely covered in those gorgeous flowers. I couldn't be happier!!
The plant is tiny and has hardly grown and it is right next to other plants in my garden that have tripped in size. I gave them to my mom for mothers day as well so it is super disappointing. Not sure what the issue is but unfortunately I would not order again.
