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
They arrived right on time and beautifully! They are small but I got them in the ground a month ago so they have had time to get rooted before going dormant. Lots of rain so they will be happy in spring.
Looks great. Just hope it makes it through a NDak winter. I mulched it. Covered it with leaves
I ordered several different plants all but 2 are doing well. Sent pics of the dead ones and was sent substitutes no problem. Well packaged and protected for shipping - nice getting growing plants and not just roots. Thank you.
The hydrangeas arrived in great shape. Loads of leaves and appeared very healthy. I watered immediately and placed all four in full shade. Within a day or two half the leaves started to wilt and fall off. By the 5-6th day all the leaves were off and the shrub was bare. Mind you, the day time temp in N. Texas was 95°+ since mid June.
I watered the 4 shrubs every morning and noticed the start of new growth on 3 of the 4 shrubs after a week or so (one did not make it). I've since put the remaining 3 in the bay window of the kitchen (early morning sun) and plan to put them in the ground in mid to late October.

4 plants were sent to me. First two were someone else’s order. These were dried up ice plants that soon died despite moderate watering. Customer service apologized and sent the proper plants. They arrived and were also shriveled and dried up. Same watering and they died a few days later. No delays in shipping or watering on my side. They promptly refunded my payment . My guess is their soil mix is too well draining for shipping in hotter climates. Probably won’t order anything else since everything so far has arrived in poor condition. I was happy with customer service however.
