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
3 stars for ease of transaction, shipping, and cost but I unfortunately this died about two weeks after I planted it. I did follow their well-designed planting guide and zone suggestions but I suppose things just don’t work out sometimes!
Received in excellent condition. Planted as a foundation plant and it is taking to its new home well. I’m in 7b (Raleigh nc) and plant is in dappled sun throughout the day with some periods of hot sun for a few hours (not over 4)
Looked very weak on arrival- gave it a go anyway… tried all summer to revive them but they couldn’t make a go of it. Order a very large order and everything else is great except the hydrangeas. They didn’t make it through the first summer.

It is with broken heart and tired minds, that I have to report that my beautiful Tuf-Stuff Mountain Hydrangeas have died. They were so beautiful when they arrived to me. But overly hot (115) days & nights (80's) and now drought watering restrictions only 3 days a week and now cold to freezing temps (29 to 35) have done my beautiful Drama Mama's in. I tried everything during the heat and everything during this horrible cold to keep them alive. I truly am depressed about them. I have a very tiny front yard and I am desperately trying to bring in some flowers, besides roses (not much of a rose fan). So I am now looking for something else and I will eventually find something, but I took such loving care of these, and they could no longer stay. So depressed...
Hello! We're sorry to hear that you've had a difficult gardening season. It is more likely that your hydrangeas have gone dormant and are not dead. It is normal for hydrangeas to lose their foliage in winter. Once spring returns, your hydrangea should bounce right back to life! If you have any additional questions or concerns, please email us at email@example.com, as we are always happy to help diagnose any potential problems.
Got my second one. Lost the first one. Doing everything possible to keep this one.
