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:

Love these plants they arrive healthy and they have remained so except after having them in the ground a few weeks and running out of my deer deterrent spray the deer enjoyed them. They ate two of them almost completely and left one basically unscathed. I sprayed them and I think they will survive.
We have a plethora of shade in our landscape beds around the house. We have a number of azaleas, hydrangeas and host as and we we had one “Jack Frost” bugloss for a few years that looks great and has done very well. The “Queen of Hearts” bugloss will fill a bigger space so we chose to add a couple to our shade garden area. The plants arrived in great shape, were nice sized in one quart pots and haven’t missed a vies after transplanting them. Highly recommended,
'Queen of Hearts' Siberian Bugloss
