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
It was a very small shrub/plant in its quart pot. It was however super healthy and has a good root system for being so small compared to its mature size. I thought it was way too small to go directly into the landscape, so I immediately transplanted it with fresh potting soil into a larger container and put it in my part sun/shade holding area. It is so happy! In one month it has doubled in size. I check on it almost every day and give it plenty of water. I’m basically growing it into to a bigger better size for my landscape. I can do that in my 8b growing location. We still have one more month of growing season here as our first frost is late November. I plan to overwinter it in its container and plant it in the early spring when it wakes up and I see the first bits of green leaves. I feel confident that it will have much more success by allowing it to grow its roots in a container and nobody steps on it! I live in a rural area with few options to buy unusual plants for my garden. Thank you for sending me a great little plant with lots of potential!
Plants arrived in good shape. Planted in garden and they are thriving. Gained height & fullness in a few weeks. Looking forward to blooms next summer.
The plants I received were better than any plants I have ordered in the past from other catalogs. I will definitely order from this company again.
Came healthy and going strong! Oh man, in a few years I can just imagine the beauty and fragrance in my yard! I love Great Gardens!
I thought the plant would be bugger than it was when it arrived, but it was healthy and is doing well in. my garden.
