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 milkweed I ordered came 4-5 months late. They arrived all roughed up with soil spilling out of the cups and roots looking very vulnerable. I put all three in the ground right away and only two survived.

The plants arrived in perfect condition. About 15 inches tall. However rabbits or deer have chewed them down to the ground. Maybe they will recover but I doubt it. I appreciate how you send out good-sized plants.
