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:

Reliable evergreen color
These came well packaged and healthy, with great root systems. They've been in partially shaded to shaded locations throughout the landscape this past year and have exceeded my expectations in growth. Now it's winter and they provide a reliable color interest along pathways. I've been very pleased. I would order from Great Garden Plants again.
First time purchaser, beautifully packed, healthy looking grasses
I couldn't find the everillo grasses locally, so I made a first time order from great garden plants and was not disappointed. Everything was packaged perfectly. The plants have been in the ground a month and all are thriving.

It looks wonderful in the garden as an edging plant. It has been in the ground for just a month or two and it is doing very well. I am in Zone 7A. Have just ordered more.
