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
I ordered three to alternate with burning bushes that I also ordered to put in a newly landscaped area next to our pond. It is still new and plants are all under cages to keep them safe while they get established from deer and hail. everything is on drippers and mulched. This has always been a dead and dry area, but rototilled, added soil and landscape cloth and plants. It already "feels" so much better.
Sturdy,leafed out well plant,with lots of promise.
Small but growing fast! Will order again
I have not seen 1 leaf or limb die. I kept it in its original pot about a month and kept it outside. It got morning sun and afternoon shade. Just planted in ground 3 weeks ago and looking great and growing strong. Only about a foot tall but showing no signs of slowing down in Ohio.
Smaller than I thought.
