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:

This is the sweetest little hosta! First year, had this little guy in a container, but recently moved him into our front bed under the shade of a crape myrtle tree. He is doing GREAT and filling out nicely. The variation on the leaves is beautiful and the smaller leaf size and habit is perfect in that space.
Greatest plants I've ever ordered
Thank you so much
On time , healthy, and doing very well. Would recommend Great Garden Plants to anyone. Have ordered many plants from them and all have been healthy and are thriving.
I received my plant last March/April 2021 and one year later, all three look the same! How do they look? AMAZING! Although a stem or two had broken upon delivery, I followed the instructions to a T. Also called customer service to clarify the care instructions. The service provided was amazing & so are our plants! Look forward to purchasing again!
