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 purchased two and they are doing great!
Growing and very healthy. I can’t wait yo see how they do next year.
Also, excellent customer service.
The root structure was so sophisticated that the purple clematis was able to bloom after 3 weeks and the vine has several shoots that are a couple feet tall.
About 4 of the 30 spider lily bulbs did nothing and the remaining 26 are growing, but not as fast as other spider lilies I've owned.

In regards to plant growth, it's hard to say why they are not growing as quickly as other plants that you've owned previously. So many factors - like weather, soil type, watering, fertilizing, and not least of all, the type of plant you purchased - all come into play. When transplanting young plants from a nursery pot to a garden, the plant allocates more energy to root development instead of shoot development (aboveground). 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.
I bought a Happy Jack Clematis and it arrived in good condition and the planting instructions were very helpful. The plant is doing well and overall I am pleased with the experience.
