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
Got three of these little guys and they seem to be holding up well!
It arrived looking like a real plant, with lots of leaves. Not the usual mail order plant! It is doing very well so far. Thank you!
My two bushes seem happy anchoring a new garden where I was forced to remove a row of trees
I bought a quart size 5 years ago to plant in a shady moist spot of our This spot is usually a bit shady with some direct evening sun. Initially it struggled a bit, but it has made it through and, while I dont love the look of it during the year, it makes up for itself come fall/winter. Absolutely STUNNER in the yard. I have made it a project to prune the bush to keep only upright growers and, so far, it looks like it is going to be a stunner.
My three plants arrived in a timely manner -- each a different size. They enjoyed three days of soil, rain, and sun before the deer enjoyed them for dessert.
We are so sorry to hear that your arctic fire dogwood plants were eaten by deer. While the arctic fire dogwood plant is deer resistant, no plant is truly deer-proof. Since they will eat anything if they're hungry enough. If you live in an area with heavy deer activity, we recommend using a liquid deer repellant to help protect your plants. As long as your plants are still within our 60 day guarantee you can email pictures to email@example.com, making sure to put your order number and name in the subject line so that we may provide the best assistance possible.
