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
Looked good. Planted it
We received our Black Cat Pussywillow it came it great shape, we planted it back in August and it has grown 2 to 3 times bigger than when we received it! We just moved to our new home 2 yrs ago and we have always had pussywillows. The price was great, the shipping was fast and we received quality bushes! We will order with Great Garden Plants for any future purchases we make.
They arrived healthy and are looking good. I can't wait till they bloom in the spring!
When I got the replacement plants they were in good order and they were planted but after some serious drought conditions, the plants appear to have died. I don't think this speaks anything poorly on Great Garden Plants. This was just not a good year to try to plant things here in Wichita, though I am surprised more the 'Miss Molly' Butterfly Bushes also struggled, but in fairness a lot of plants are struggling due to the 100+ temperatures we've had. Timing might be an issue too, but the original order was in that 2-month timeframe when they shipped and arrived in questionable to poor condition, minus the Forsythia which were very healthy but are also more drought tolerant. I'd rate 3 stars since all 3 of the bushes passed for the Black Cat that needed more moisture to thrive. I'm also combining this with the other two plants mentioned. I think Great Garden Plants has been fair given the way the plants were received. Unfortunately, probably should have tried a refund on the Black Cats. Didn't think we'd go into such a drought this year.
I am looking forward to seeing the new plant flourish in my garden. It arrived packaged beautifully and so healthy! Absolutely love it!
