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:

Arrives as young plant
The plant arrived very healthy and is looking great in my flower garden.
It’s growing well!! No blooms but that’s ok it’s little next year it’ll bloom I’m sure!!
I am very pleased with this plant. It arrived very healthy. It took a few weeks to adapt to its new home spite being planted it South Carolina August heat, but it pulled through. The other day it got its first bloom! So beautiful, I can't wait to see what the future holds with this plant!
I like the dark foilage, works well with my other hibiscus that are lighter. Beautiful flowers and blooming well. Will order more..
Nice healthy plant
Hello! We're glad that you are happy with your new hibiscus. Keep in mind that 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. They generally spend their first year growing roots in their new home, the second year they have more energy to put into growth, and the third year, they are growing and flowering vigorously. Happy Gardening!
