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:

DescriptionIf you're looking for a plant with long-lasting blooms, look no further than KISMET® White coneflower (Echinacea hybrid). Growing in an upright, compact habit, KISMET® White fits in just about any sized landscape, big or small. Find a sunny spot in your flower bed to add these bright white blooms; you won't regret it! Blooming all summer long, you'll have plenty of flowers to enjoy throughout the season. Butterflies will flock to your garden, and birds will love the seed, and you'll have a stunning perennial. Everyone wins!DetailsBotanical name:Echinacea x 'TNECHKW' Patent #: USPPAF Common name: Coneflower, echinacea Zone: 4 – 9 Sun exposure: Sun (6+ hours sun) Height x width: 16-18″ x 24″ Flower color: White Foliage color: Green Season of Interest: Summer-fall Uses: Border, cottage gardening, massing, naturalizing, pollinator specimen, wildflower. How To GrowSoil: Any well-drained soil will do. Light: Full sun. Plant them in a spot that gets at least 6 hours of full sun a day. If planted in too much shade, plants may flop or strain to reach the sun. Water: Average. Water regularly the first season to encourage good root growth. Though coneflowers handle heat and dry conditions well once established, they appreciate regular watering and flower more if they are not stressed. Spacing: 24 inches Fertilizing: Little needed. Over fertilizing will cause spindly growth, so once in the spring with a granular garden fertilizer is more than sufficient. Winterizing: Avoid damp spots. Do not heap mulching over crowns in winter, as this can cause rot. Leave the foliage and old flowers standing for winter (birds enjoy the seed heads), then trim back or remove spent foliage in early spring before new growth emerges. Maintenance & Pruning: Once planted, they are best left alone, as they do not transplant well. Deadheading (snipping off the spent blooms) is not necessary but does increase new flower production.

It’s not you!
I have a bad case of bunnies and they chewed all of these down before they had a chance to take hold. I know they do well in the right (read: bunny free) spot, because my daughter also got some from GGP and hers are doing well.
Hearty, but not as vibrant as I had hoped

Kismet Is Right
These mature plants arrived healthy, with developing blooms. A couple of weeks after planting (even in the summer heat) and they’re blooming beautifully. I’ve planted 4 of them to create a small drift in my cottage style garden. They’re a wonderful summer bloomer, which I’ve planted by taller purple coneflowers, and dark purple Catmint. These are a bright staple for summer beds!
