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
It REALLY does not want to dry out, in the hottest part of the Summer (high 90's) I planted these and they definitely fussed about it, pouted, acted like they were going to shrivel up and die. Once I got them established though, they started thriving. No blooms yet but that foliage is gorgeous!!!
Received in great condition planted in mid May … has been filling in nicely but no flowers yet… hope to get some this season ;)
Although packaging was secure, all plants moist and pretty much intact.. There is little hope for the Astilbe. Leaves are completely brown, crispy. At first opening, I thought mildew, they were more blackish. Mouse hosta kind of had same mildewy look, but improved. After a day the Astilbe turned brown, almost see-through and super dry crispy. Very sad.

Planted this in same bed as my other astilbe and it started to grow, died; new growth again and died out again. No new growth in last 3weeks. ☹️☹️
Hello! Thank you for your feedback. It sounds like you planted your new astilbe next to a more mature plant. Our advice is to make sure that your new plant is receiving enough water. It sounds like the new astilbe is going through a period of drought, dying off, and then growing back with watering. We recommend watering your new astilbe a bit more. Also, the first year in your garden, new plants spend their first year growing roots in their new home, the the second year they have more energy to put into growth, and the third year, they are growing and flowering vigorously. If you have any additional questions we'd be happy to provide further guidance. You can reach us by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Happy Gardening!
Great quality and of plants… beyond impressed! Already blooming!
