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
Doing Great! At first when the plant arrived it was a little droopy and small and I wondered how it would do. The original leaves died back and new ones grew in. Now it is full of life, full of blooms, doing very well in a not so great soil situation. Definitely hardy. I will be buying more!
Planted behind some annual grass as a permanent addition to flowerbed. Plants are green and healthy but not growing larger.
Hello! Thank you for leaving feedback. When transplanting young plants from a nursery pot to a garden, the plant allocates more energy to root development instead of shoot development (above ground). 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. They generally spend their first year growing roots in their new home, the second year they have more energy to put into growth, and the third year, they are growing and flowering vigorously. This applies to plants in the garden center as well as plants you purchase online. We hope this helps. Happy Gardening!
Plants were well packaged and arrived in great shape. All plants are in the ground and thriving. I just love this type of grass - nice height and lovely arch with very pretty blooms. These will always be a part of my garden in various areas.
Easy to order, great selection, package arrived quickly and intact, plants are thriving. Highly recommend.
The came packaged wonderfully. Waited 24 hr to plant outside. They receive 6ish hr of sunlight, only 4 have survived out of 6. I am going to contact Great Garden Plants to see about a refund for the 2 that died.
