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:

After 30 short summer days of Pan Handle rain, these plants are dead. Despite the description, these plants do not do well in moisture. Also, please note that Great Garden defaults all reviews to 5 stars, so the averages are skewed.
And "YES", my roof has rain gutters and I did contact support but was not offered anything other than a proverbial "oh well".
Hello! Thank you for leaving a review. While our review software defaults to 5 stars, our customers can easily change their rating, and do to reflect their thoughts on our plants. Just as you were able to change your rating to a one star review.
In regards to your grass, it's hard to give an exact answer to what is happening without a little more information. A common problem we see (both with our customers and our staff) is plants in garden beds under roofs without gutters. If the roof above your garden bed does not have gutters, the plants below will be destroyed. Even moisture loving plants cannot tolerate being poured on by rain.
Good drainage is crucial - even for plants that are moisture tolerant. When soil is dry, the pores between its particles are full of oxygen, which the roots need to live. When it rains or you water, the pores get full of water. This is fine as long as that doesn't stick around forever, but if drainage is bad or watering/rainfall is very frequent, the pores stay full of water and literally deprive the roots of oxygen. This can be exacerbated by humidity, as there is less evaporation from the soil, that will also slow the drainage and lead to root rot.

I am 100% satisfied with the quality of the Japanese Forest grass that I ordered from this site. They are a lovely accent in my garden, and have all been thriving since planting. I wouldn't hesitate to order again from this site, for their high quality at a reasonable price.
I purchased several plants from Great Garden Plants, and I was very pleased. The plants were very healthy and are growing nicely now! I would purchase from them again!
I really like this low growing grass. I have a full grown grouping of ‘all gold’ on the opposite side. My cat loves maneuvering through it like a jungle cat.
