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:

Just planted these a few weeks ago in very poor soil. Usually I amend the soil but didn’t this time. Have seen nice growth and flowers so far. I did add some fertilizer because of the sandy, clay soil. If they do start to decline I will probably did them up and add good soil.
Hello! We do not recommend amending the soil when you plant. Amending the soil can set back or even kill your plant. Our friends at Proven Winners have an extensive article on this here: https://www.provenwinners.com/learn/how-plant/should-you-amend-your-soil-when-you-plant

These plants arrived in excellent condition and within a few days of planting were producing nice flowers. Will buy more plants from here in the future for sure!
It was truly worth the wait for my Red Drift Roses. They were healthy upon receipt. I am happily amazed as planting was late into the Spring. They budded immediately and are now growing, thriving, and have lots of blossoms. This is a beautiful rose plant, the red color is vibrant and unusual. I'm trying to find additional spots in my garden so I can order more next Spring!
In all I have bought drift roses from you. I use them in front for a pop of color. I received them in very healthy condition, which keeps me coming back for other plants. All received in very healthy condtion.
We are pleased so far with our Red Drift Roses. We bought the smaller size (quart, I think). We had a slight frost right after we planted them and a few outside leaves turned brown, but overall the plants are doing good and have started to get a few flowers. We will have to wait for them to get big, but the plants are healthy looking and doing very well. I would recommend them.
Updated 9/29/21: I have attached an updated picture of the roses that we purchased in the spring. They have grown much bigger and are healthy and pretty! (The picture was taken from the opposite direction along the sidewalk to get the best picture with the sun.) We are very pleased with how big they have grown this first year.
