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
Just the first year, however, not getting very big. About foot, maybe 16" high and smaller blossoms than I thought. The original leaves all turned brown so I cut them off, and it is now sending out new ones, so it must be healthy. Nice little accent plant, Next year I'll divide it to get 2 and the year after 4. Hope that it grows taller and bigger!
I LOVE the 1 of 5 plants that has developed with stems and flowers. The other 4 look healthy, but no sign of blooming. We are having a very strange summer climate so they may still bloom. They look very healthy and some are bigger than the one that is blooming. I do truly love the look of this plant and no complaints with the shipping and delivery at all. Hoping there are just some late bloomers.
Hello! Thank you for leaving a review. 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. Happy Gardening!
