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
I ordered couple of lilies and allium plants and both arrived in great shape, we planted them in the ground and so far so good, can't wait to see them grow!
Plants were packaged with great care and shipping was lightning speed, have already recommended them to friends, thank you so much!
Arrived - packaged perfectly, in the ground looking good, can’t wait until next spring!
beautiful plants, growing nicely now- good job
The lily came with one bud that bloomed quickly and has not produced anything since. The lily was beautiful but the plant was so small. I am trying to keep it alive in hopes that it blooms next year.
Hello! Thank you for leaving a review. As mentioned on our website, we do ship young plants that vary in size depending on the type of plant purchased and the time of the year. Keep in mind, that 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!
The plants were small; but very healthy and packaged well. One even bloomed right away. I expect they will do very well.
