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:

Have two groups of 3 planted, all in partial sun. So far have lost two of them others look fine. They can’t take the heat, and the way some are good but some aren’t, makes me suspect something was rushed in the breeding/selection process.

The 3 fire light tidbits are settling into their new home nicely. I know it will be a long time before they bloom, however, I can hardly wait. I truly believe that different varieties are going to be listed on my “Wish List “.
I planted them early spring and all but one is thriving. Think something was chewing on it. Very small plants and probably won’t get to see any blooms this year but I’m excited for next year!
Hello, thank you for your feedback! We are happy to hear that most of your hydrangeas are doing well and we are sorry that one seems to be struggling. If you would like one of our horticulture experts to take a look at the one that isn't doing as well, you can send a picture of it to email@example.com and we will see if we can provide any guidance. Happy Gardening!
I planted this hydrangea in September. I live in zone 4 in Wisconsin. It looks so healthy and strong. I will see how it does over our cold winter.
The plants are healthy and arrived on time, but for the cost I thought they would be larger and blooming. Hopefully it will look like something next year.
