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:

Beautiful plants. Arrived very healthy and are doing great so far. Packaging was great with only one small branch broken.
I’m very happy with my butterfly bush, it showed up very healthy and after a couple weeks being planted it has established itself wonderfully with a lot of new growth. I would definitely order from Garden Plus in the future.
I love these bushes. Not only do they flower for a long period of time, but they bring all kinds of butterflies. Monarchs and blue butterflies I had never seen at my home before. I'm in North Texas and there were afternoons last summer that I would have dozens of butterflies floating around the flowers. As a bonus I'm seeing more hummingbirds as well. What a wonderful shrub.
Very healthy on arrival and set in good and started blooming in a couple weeks! Hope it survives winter well and comes back strong next spring!!!!
These are great Butterfly bushes! They were very healthy when delivered about a month ago and already have many buds and are starting to bloom!
