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 got mine in a Grab Bag, and it's just about to flower, it's so lovely I'm going to gift it to my neighbor as a thank you!
It's beautiful! I expected it to be small due to shipping but it's settling in nicely in the shade. Can't wait to watch it grow for many more years!

I bought several varieties of hosta including Shadowland Seducer and all of them have thrived. Many are flowering now in this heat. I lost a few other plants but Great Garden Plants refunded them. I placed 4 orders with them this spring and will order again, very happy.
After returning my initial order, which didn't make it, they returned my money and I decided to give them another try. I ordered something different, hostas. This company does an excellent job of packing and they arrived in excellent condition. They are doing great and the quality is also excellent. I wouldn't hesitate to use them again. I have tried three other nurseries in the past and Great Garden Plants is far superior to them. Keep up the good work.
