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
Nice looking plants, they've been in the ground a couple of weeks or so and are doing well.
Planted this last spring, they did very well, stayed compact but full with nice purple color that changed later summer to a brown-purple. Considering their on the east side of my house they did quite well. I have six other varieties of Weigela and this and My Monet are my favorites.
Purchased 3 of these and planted about 2 months ago. Zone 7a in northern Delaware and they seem to be doing well. I have them in an area that receives afternoon shade. I fed with extended release fertilizer at planting time. They don't seem to need much care. They don't appear to get stressed when we haven't had any rain. No insect problems and the bunnies leave them alone.
Plants arrived in great condition and are doing well
With an auto-watering supply of 10 minutes of drip hose in both morning and evening, I expected them to take off a little quicker?
Just returned from a week and a half vacation, just looking at the dozen plants a few minutes ago. A couple have taken off nicely, while others don't appear much different than the day they were received and planted, well over a month ago?
They look healthy - so, maybe they're just taking their own sweet time?!
