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:

DescriptionGet juicy, summer-drenched color with Infinitini Watermelon® crapemyrtle (Lagerstroemia indica). This high-performance crapemyrtle from Proven Winners is compact, which needs no pruning and takes up just a fraction of the space required by larger trees. Starting in summer, it becomes a mass of bright, watermelon-pink blooms that continue through the season. The color is traffic-stopping! Come fall, its foliage lights up in an array of orange, yellow, and red.
Infinitini® crapemyrtles were developed in central Pennsylvania and have proven hardy even in USDA zone 6. They are some of the most cold-tolerant crapemyrtles to date! They may die back to the ground in colder areas, but they come roaring back from the roots and go on to bloom fabulously later in summer.DetailsBotanical name:Lagerstroemia indica 'G2X133181' Patent: USPP 29,007 Common name: Crapemyrtle, Crape myrtle, Crepe myrtle Zone: 6 - 9 Sun exposure: Sun (> 6 hours sun) Height x width: 3-4' tall and wide Flower color: Watermelon-pink Foliage color: Green Season of interest: Summer Uses: Hedge, edging, flower gardens, specimen, containers How To GrowSoil: Moist but well-draining soils are best. Can tolerate some dryness once established. Light: Sun (> 6 hours sun) Water: Average. Space: Plant at least 4' apart. Fertilizing: Little needed. 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: A good 2-3" layer of mulch is recommended, USDA zone 6. Maintenance: Blooms on new wood, so it can be safely pruned in spring, though it is rarely necessary, thanks to its tidy, dwarf habit. Dead wood can be removed in spring, once new growth has begun to emerge and it's clear where any dieback may have occurred.
It came in very good condition and was packaged very well. Sadly I made the biggest mistake I could have ever made, I transplanted it in summer heat. As a result it wilted. I hoping it might come back. The leaves are still on, just very wilted.
By no means not. Your mistake, but my stupidity.
I will keep ordering from you. Customer Service is excellent and you certainly stand by your product.
Thank you for a great job.
Purchased 2 of these in the Fall of 2021. Only one survived the winter. Unfortunately we are away from home from mid April to mid June and missed the time period for the replacement of the one that didn't survive. The one that survived had only started to leaf out when we left so was hoping the other would just be a little later since it was a cooler location than the one that had leafed out.
