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:

DescriptionEnjoy one of the most spectacular autumn displays with Brandywine™ viburnum (Viburnum nudum). You simply must grow this durable native plant to believe it! Spring brings the emergence of very glossy leaves, and is soon followed by foamy white flower clusters. They develop into green berries, and as summer progresses, turn to a luminous ivory color. By early autumn, they begin to flush bright pink and ripen to blue-purple, creating a mixed color effect that becomes even more stunning when the foliage turns bright red.
This Proven Winners selection does not require a pollinator to develop berries, so you only need to plant one. That makes it beautifully suited to specimen planting, but it’s also great in multiples as a hedge or backdrop to a perennial garden. Once you see how beautiful it is, you’ll want to fill your yard with Brandywine!DetailsBotanical name:Viburnum nudum 'Bulk' Common name: Viburnum, Withe-rod viburnum Zone: 5- 9 Sun exposure: Full sun (6+ hours sun) to part-sun (4-6 hours sun) Height x width: 5-6' tall and wide Flower color: White, with pink and blue berries in autumn Foliage color: Green, turning bright red in fall Season of Interest: Spring-Fall Bloom time: Spring Features: Wet soils, proven winners, privacy & screening, native, heat tolerant, deer resistant Uses: Specimen, landscaping, pollinator gardens, native plant gardens.

I loved the way each of my plants was packages and delivered. Very safe and quick. However for the price I had expected much larger plants, like what I could get at a local greenhouse. So far only 3 of my 4 plants have survived the transplant even though we followed proper techniques and have a drip system in place. I will probably order again if only because the varieties I'm looking for are not available near me.
