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
After a couple of months, it is thriving in a hot and sunny location. Love this plant and coming back for more!
Young Coral Bells do not like excessive heat. I found this out the hard way since we had this heat wave in mid to late May. In spite of these unforseen circumstances, Great Garden Plants refunded my money. The best time to plant these is in early spring when the weather is slightly cool, but not freezing. Don't wait until summer. Early Fall is also a good time to plant these.
Just had to join in on the reviews. But I had ordered several different varieties 15 in all. I worried about the last batch, and I have been babying them all, due to extreme heat and now colder than normal temps. I Truley am SO VERY HAPPY WITH EVERY SINGLE ONE OF THEM. They are already trying to grow more, and they should be relaxing and chilling out, LOL. SO many thanks to you and this company, for all you do to keep us happy and with the beautiful plants that have been sent. Now I have to figure out what to put with them.
I received and planted these about as late as possible for my zone. As with others I've bought, they "took" immediately and are thriving and looking great!
These for the most part were DOA. The same plant purchased at a local nursery and planted 30 inches away are thriving.
Hello! We apologize you received your plants not up to our standards. As we try our best to provide exceptional service, some factors like shipping and handling are outside of our control, and issues like this can sometimes happen.
Keep in mind, there can be variations in environmental conditions, even when the spacing seems minimal. There is some condition between the two of them that is making the spot a bit less favorable for growth than the other. It could be that it gets less sun, or that the roots are too warm or getting too much/too little water.
Please email pictures of the plant to firstname.lastname@example.org, making sure to put your order number and name in the subject line so that we may provide the best assistance possible. Rest assured, we do have a 60-day guarantee on all of our plants. If you received your plants within that timeframe, we will be happy to apply your warranty once we receive the pictures. Happy Gardening!
