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:

I have these in part-sun and they’re very thirsty and dry out quickly. I’m hoping once they’re more well established and the trees next to them grow bigger that they’ll need less frequent watering.
Not growing much in fact it has dimmnished. Maybe its because of the dry weather. Hope it does OK next year.
Hello! Thank you for leaving a review. Foamflower thrives in evenly moist, well draining soil. However, you should also avoid keeping the soil wet. It's hard to say what exactly is happening without more information or photos of the plant and it's environment. Keep in mind that when transplanting young plants from a nursery pot to a garden, the plant allocates more energy to root development instead of shoot development (above ground). It's important for them to develop a robust root system so they can actually absorb the nutrients and water in the soil around them. Then after their root system is more developed they'll invest in their shoots and flower development. Here is a resource on watering: https://blog.greatgardenplants.com/how-much-water-should-i-give-my-plants/ We hope this helps! Happy Gardening!
Very nice healthy plants. Well packaged. Price is reasonable especially if you use the bulk discount. Ordered other perennials after seeing how great these were. Can’t wait for those to arrive!
Came very healthy and happy
