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:

DescriptionLove old fashioned Azalea blooms, but mourn their loss after the quick two-week bloom time? Now there's Bloom-A-Thon® White Reblooming Azalea, which flowers for up to five months. Dazzling white blooms engulf this shrub in spring and again from July into fall, unhindered by the high heat of summer. When blooms are finished, its clean, disease-resistant evergreen foliage keeps the show going for vibrant, year-round color. With a rather petite habit and unfussy nature, its role in the garden is practically limitless - use in mass plantings, containers, a specimen, low hedge, or mixed borders!DetailsBotanical name:Rhododendron 'RLH1-3P3' Patent #: USPP 21,512 Common name: Reblooming azalea Zone: 7 - 9 Sun exposure: Sun (> 6 hours sun) to part sun (4-6 hours sun) Height x width: 2.5-3' x 2.5-3' Flower color: White Foliage color: Green Season of interest: Spring through fall Uses: Accent, Background, Border, Container gardening, Cottage gardening, Foundation, Hedge, Mass planting, Flower garden How To GrowSoil: Fertile, well-drained organic soil. Acidic soil is necessary for azaleas, with an ideal pH around 5.5 to 6.2. Light: Sun (> 6 hours sun) to part sun (4-6 hours sun). Part sun to dappled shade is ideal in hotter climates. Water: Azaleas are shallow-rooted, and will need regular watering in times of extreme heat. Adding a 2-3" layer of shredded bark mulch beneath them will help keep the soil moist and cool. Do not use rock mulches around azaleas. Spacing: 2-3' Fertilizing: Reblooming azaleas benefit from fertilizing after their spring bloom. You may use a rose fertilizer or a rhododendron/azalea fertilizer. Never fertilize reblooming azaleas after late July. Winterizing: Planting in a protected area from harsh winter winds will help prevent winter damage. Plants should be mulched for winter. Maintenance & Pruning: Plants may be pruned or lightly trimmed after their spring bloom to encourage new growth and a better rebloom.
