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
Followed all instructions for planting and there has been no growth at all. I don't think they're dead (yet) but I'm not impressed with my plants.
The plant was tiny but very healthy upon arrival. I ordered 3 and they are all growing well even gave me some beautiful little purple blooms! I definitely love Abelia and gladly to have this plant at my garden!
The Funshine Abelia that I ordered to replace shrubs lost in the severe winter freeze in Texas, arrived in good shape although they were extremely small for what I paid for them. They are in the ground now for over a month and thriving, growing bigger and even blooming!
The Funshine Abelia looked so good.. I ordered another. Every plant I have ordered from Great Gardens has arrived healthy and is doing well. Plants are packaged so well that there is no way they could be damaged in shipping.
Prepared soil and hole for planting as instructed. All 8 that I planted in full sun are healthy and smiling. Can't wait to see the blooms with butterflies and hummingbirds. This is exciting, as the colors are so nice with Trim on house. Needed shorter plants in front of windows.
You'll have to share pictures with us once they're in bloom! We love seeing our plants in their new homes. Thanks for taking the time to leave your feedback, Sally. We appreciate it!
