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:

Hello! Thank you for leaving a review. As mentioned on our website, we do ship young plants. The important thing when it comes to purchasing plants, whether online or in a garden center, is that they have a full, robust root system, and that's what we prioritize in our growing. The more roots a plant has, the more energy it can put into growing once it is planted in your garden. Happy Gardening!
Pretty when first planted but very fragile, couldn’t even hold up to light watering with a hose. I jerry rigged some small stakes to support them and two out of four fowered, the others just kind of wilted and faded away. Praying that maybe next year they’ll come back hardier, I had such hope for these prett litlle plants and really wanted some delphis in my garden.
Hello! Thank you for leaving us feedback. It's hard to say for certain what could be happening with the new plants in your garden. When transplanting young plants from a nursery pot to a garden, the plant allocates more energy to root development instead of shoot development (above ground). It's important for them to develop a robust root system so they can actually absorb the nutrients and water in the soil around them. Then after their root system is more developed they'll invest in their shoots and flower development. We do have a 60-day guarantee on all of our plants. Our customer service team would be happy to further assist. Please email pictures of the plant to email@example.com, making sure to put your order number and name in the subject line so that we may provide the best assistance possible. Happy Gardening!
