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:

DescriptionTuck’ Angelina' Stonecrop (Sedum rupestre) in the tough to grow sites in your garden for an extra pop of chartreuse color! Delightfully bright, narrow, succulent leaves stay attractive all year round, taking on reddish tones in the cooler months. Upright yellow flowers shine in summer, growing 6-8 inches tall.
Vigorous and dependable, this sedum will grow over a foot wide in a season, creating a bright carpet of foliage. It thrives in challenging spots, whether between rocks or on dry slopes. It grows well in heat and drought, making them great container plants for hot, sunny decks!DetailsBotanical name:Sedum rupestre 'Angelina' Common name: Sedum, Stonecrop Zone: 3 - 9 Sun exposure: Sun (> 6 hours sun) Height x width: 3" X 18" Flower color: Yellow Foliage color: Chartreuse-yellow Season of interest: Year-round Bloom time: Summer Features: Winter interest, suitable slopes, heat tolerant, ground covers, drought tolerant, container plants, cold tolerant Uses: Accent, alpine and rock, container gardening, edging, erosion control, ground cover, massing, slopes How To GrowSoil: Average, dry to medium moisture, well-draining soils. It needs sharp soil drainage, so it grows well in sandy and gravelly soils. Light: Sun (> 6 hours sun). Will lean toward the sun if grown in too much shade. Water: Dry to average moisture. It tolerates drought once established, but should receive some water when conditions are hot and dry. Spacing: 1.5 - 2 ft. Fertilizing: Fertilizer isn't required when grown in rich soils, but a handful of all-purpose granular fertilizer can be applied in early spring if needed. Winterizing: Dried flower heads of many varieties remain attractive in winter, whether left standing in the garden or brought indoors. Small animals and bugs may take home in accumulated debris during cold weather. It doesn't need mulch in winter unless grown in harsh climates. Maintenance & pruning: Pinch back the tips of new spring growth for more compact plants. Stop fertilizing and water in the fall and winter. Throughout spring and summer, divisions and cuttings can easily root for new plants.

My plants arrived in excellent shape and are happily growing in my garden
L.B. (New Mexico)
Several things went wrong; on delivery some of the branches were broken at the stem and of course the stem had been roughed up pretty bad. My son received the order and watered it. (Possibly too much because it looked wilted) I returned home 2 days later and gently panted it, it was pretty destroyed. There is no plant showing, but the weather is changing. My hope is that the roots stayed intact and the plant just went dormant.
Healthy plants, great packaging
I've ordered from several online nurseries and I'm most impressed with Great Garden Plants for their quality of both the plant and the careful packaging. I've received dying/damaged plants from other online nurseries due to lack of secure packaging or poor plant condition before shipping. Specifically, I can say that GGP does a much better job in protecting the plant for shipment than FGT.
Very fragile plants received, lost much of them just by “looking at them.” Once rooted they seem to be growing nicely.
