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
The shipping was so fast. They were packaged so well. They arrived with clear instructions on care and planting. I ordered several of these and they all see to be growing well.
So pleased with the strength and color of the plant. Sturdy plant. If I would want more plants of any kind, Great Garden Plants would be the first place I would go to.
I recommend this company highly.
Unfortunately when these plants were received they were all extremely dried out and wilted. These appear only now to be showing signs of life. Fingers crossed they will thrive and recover.

My miniskirt hosta has thrived from the moment I got it. When I saw the picture I knew I had to have it. I wondered though what it would actually look like. We all know that the web and catalog pictures show the best possible specimen. I was thrilled to see that it looked just like the picture. It was a perfect specimen, just slightly less mature than the web picture. The plant is adorable.
Bought six mini hostas for front bed. Packaging was superior and ensured full integrity of plant quality. Will definitely order from here again!
