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:

I would like to order more for spring.
I know the quality of a shipped item is more a reflection on the transportation company than the company you buy the product from, I feel it necessary to mention that my plants arrived in great condition. There was a lot of care put into making sure they arrived in good condition. I bought 4 plants, 2 of them started flowering just 2 weeks after I planted them. I’m a big fan of this company.
I ordered 4 of these to be a filler/groundcover for my new berm and all arrived healthy. One of them is even blooming already (in late summer)! I did not expect any blooms this year, so that is a happy surprise!
This time they arrive really bad. I reacived them very, very wet. I can’t plant them , they were moldy😢😢😢😢

I have purchased multiple flats of this bugleweed ground cover and I love them! They are the best!
First, thank you, Great Garden Plants, for offering these in smaller plugs! I was buying larger plants from my local nursery, and it would've cost a fortune to cover the large area I'm trying to tackle. The tray with small plugs have deep root systems that seem to really help them settle well and quickly. They are shaped like a bullet (curved) which avoids the sharp root-bound corners of other flats.
Advice: Buy early in spring if possible! I noticed a big difference between the first set that I bought early in the season, and later ones. These tend to tangle with one another and are harder to tease apart. Be patient! They are hardy, and even if you need to gently tear them apart, they will do fine. Also, be understanding! They are tangling with one another because they are healthy and want to spread, even in the tray!
I water quite regularly at first (as I do with any new plants) until they get settled. This attention seems to really help them grow fast. In just a few weeks these small plugs caught up to the size of the plants from my local nursery that were 4 times the cost per plant.
Great buy. Beautiful plants. Color is stunning. Easy care. Nice lawn alternative.
