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
Boulder blue arrived healthy and big. I can’t wait until they are taller.so pretty in my yard against the mini black mulch.
Love the color and healthy condition of this Blue Festue Grass. Can’t wait until it matures.
I planted several Blue Boulder fescue plants in March and April of this year. They look pretty much the same as when I planted them. Maybe they are "sleeping" and will perk up next year but not very optimistic. Other grasses I planted look good even in this drought and heat but not the blue fescue. Dissapointed that it's too late for a replacement.
Hello! Thank you for leaving feedback. 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 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. They generally spend their first year growing roots in their new home, in the second year, they have more energy to put into growth; and in the third year, they grow and flower vigorously. We hope this helps. Happy Gardening!
All three arrived in great shape and are thriving as a new addition to our back yard landscaping. Our local garden center expert was concerned the region’s clay earth, combined with abundant rainfall, would result in “wet feet”, so we planted them in raised landscaping along a retaining wall.
My plants arrived, very healthy and very well packaged. I was so impressed I placed another order and they arrived the same way. Would definitely recommend to anyone.
