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:

How To GrowSoil: Roses do best in well-drained soil with consistent moisture. Though they can shoulder through periods of hot, dry weather, too much drought will negatively impact flowering. Not fussy about soil pH. Light: Full sun (> 6 hours sun) is required for best blooming and disease resistance. Water: Average to abundant (as long as the soil is well-drained). Space: 1.5 - 3' apart Fertilizing: If desired, fertilize in early spring, once the ground has thawed, with a granular rose fertilizer. A second application may be made in late spring/early summer as well. Winterizing: No special care required, aside from the standard 2-3" layer of shredded bark mulch. Proven Winners roses are not grafted, so they do not require the extensive winter care you may be accustomed to providing roses. Maintenance: In spring, cut back to just above where big, healthy buds are emerging. This ensures that the growth for the season will be thick and vigorous. You can cut back as much as one-half of the entire plant. Deadheading is not required for continuous bloom.
