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 wrote the earlier review about the plant arriving with two broken leaves. Unfortunately I can't find a way to just edit and add a photo, so I'm adding it this way. Here's what the sad thing looks like after about two weeks. I planted it, watered carefully, used quality soil. One big leaf was droopy from the start in addition to the two that were broken. Not much to the plant to begin with. Just a disappointment.

The plant looked healthy overall, but with two big leaves broken (among only a few the plant has), it's not a stunner. We'll see if it does well. This year is a loss to show it off, but if it survives the winter, maybe it'll look better next year. Disappointed.
