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:

The small shrub arrived looking rather tired and without many leaves. Unfortunately, it hasn't done much better after planting. All other plants I've received from this company have all arrived in excellent condition and are doing very well. I didn't want to make a complaint because this was a free plant that was sent to me due to a mistake made in a prior order.

My plants are doing really well even though I am in Zone 9 They are full and bushy, and putting out lots of new growth. They even survived Hurricane Ian. I will be buying more.of these plants from greatgardenplants.com.
I bought 5 Tricolor Dappled Willow plants. They arrived quickly and in great shape. I live in Zone 9 which Great Garden Plants considers unsuitable for these plants, but having already bought 5 of these from another, more well known company, which were/are growing well, I got them anyway.
I planted them quickly and within a short time they were already producing new growth that is more bushy than my previous purchase from elsewhere.
This year our Florida weather has been exceptionally and unusually dry and the sun has been brutal. There has been little to no cloud cover so I have been watering my plants every day morning and evening.
I lost one plant and that was my fault because the area in which I placed it was less shaded than the others and the plant was under a lot of stress from the intense UV and heat.
All I can say is that I am very happy with my purchase and will be buying more plants from this company. So thank you. I
Either they had a fungus or they were terribly overwater before shipping, but they didn't make it 3 days after I received them. Very disappointing.
