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
Seems to be ok. Just waiting for Spring. I had no direction for planting.
Hello! We want to help! Youi may contact firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions, or check out our 'How to Grow' section on our website under the plant page. Here is some information to help you care for your daylily:
Soil: Easily grown in average, medium moisture, well-draining soils. Daylilies perform well in a wide range of soils but prefer deep, fertile loam.
Light: Sun (> 6 hours sun) to part sun (4-6 hours sun). Light afternoon shade will keep brightly colored flowers from fading.
Water: Water plants during the summer if rainfall is less than 1 inch per week. Benefits from a thin layer of mulch in spring to retain soil moisture.
Spacing: 1.5 to 2 feet
Fertilizing: Avoid excessive fertilizing as this will inhibit flower production.
Winterizing: Can allow foliage to remain for the winter, then remove spent foliage in spring as new growth emerges.
Maintenance & pruning: Remove individual spent flowers and cut back flower stalks once all flowers are gone. Divide plants every three to four years as new growth begins in the spring
You would think the plants for the price paid, they would be bigger! Deceiving upon delivery!
Also on delivery, even though packaging was good, the soil spilled out of all the plant pots. And what was sent per the order, there were missing plants. The time frame stated was in the planning but due to missing plants, I had to plant them myself, as my landscaper was to plant them and charged me for the planting. He was long gone! I am not as young as I used to be, having to plant them myself, was painful.
Only time will tell by the spring if they survive per the guarantee time frame.
Hello! We're sorry you are not satisfied with your plants! We do note that all of our plants are young on each product page and on our plant sizes page https://www.greatgardenplants.com/pages/sizes.The size and maturity of the plants varies widely depending on the time of the year you purchased and if they were recently trimmed. The important thing when it comes to purchasing plants, whether online or in a garden center, is that they have a full, robust root system, and that's what we prioritize in our greenhouses. The more roots a plant has, the more energy it can put into growing once it is planted in your garden. We do keep our plants trimmed to encourage strong root development! If you are in need of further assistance, please reach out to email@example.com. Rest assured, we have a guarantee on all our plants. Our fall guarantee covers plants received after September 1 until May 2024! If you received your plants within that timeframe, we would happily apply your warranty once we receive the pictures. Happy Gardening!
They arrived in good condition and still look healthy since being transplanted to a container garden. I have hopes for them here in Zone 9a of Florida.
Seems to be doing well.
I ordered $700 worth of new plants and half of them were dead by the 2nd week.
