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:

NEVER have I received a planting in such bad shape. Died within a week. It had to have been a recent cutting as there were scant hair size roots absolutely no established root system on that cutting. Proven Winners would be completely mortified that you had sent a customer a cutting such as you sent me in one of their pots. SHAME ON YOU! I WILL NOT BE DOING ANY OTHER BUYING FROM GREAT GARDEN PLANTS. I DIDN'T PICK A STAR AS THERE WERE NO MINUS STARS. FOR SURE I AM UNSCRIBING!

For such a tiny shrub, its beautiful. Colors are so eye catching.
It came in not good condition, particularly dry because of long time sipping. I was planting it right away and now I don’t know if it’s alive or no, because outside cold and plants look with out foliage like die. We’ll see it when will be spring time.
We apologize that you received plants that are not up to our standards. As we try our best to provide exceptional service, some factors, like shipping and handling, are outside our control, and issues like this can sometimes happen. Most often, plants bounce back quickly once they've found a home in your garden. As it is the colder months, your new plant has most likely gone dormant. This does not mean your plant is dead but is just resting until spring. Rest assured, we have a guarantee on all our plants. Our fall guarantee covers plants received after September 1 until May 2023! https://www.greatgardenplants.com/pages/our-guarantee
I ordered 2 candy corn spirea plants. They arrived when it was still very hot and dry in my 8b location. Both plants were very tiny and fragile in their quart pots. I immediately replanted them to a 1 gallon pot and checked on them daily along with plenty of water. They started to grow and fill out nicely. It was very easy to monitor the growth because all the new foliage is red! After living in their new pots and growing for about 6-8 weeks I went ahead and planted them in my landscape. They are doing great! They have put on a lot more new growth and seem to love their new home next to my Agapanthus. I’m happy that they are going strong and hopefully put on a nice show next season. They have to get ready for a lot of heat and sunshine in my garden.
My double play doing very well. Have it wrapped in chicken wire to keep deer from nibbling. Ones I planted last year grew like crazy & deer ate all the blossoms off so had to wrap them too, darn deer.
