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
The contrasts with other plants of size, shape and color of leaves is pleasing. Flowers bring in spring are pretty with soft color.
I received my first order from GGP today and it definitely won't be my last. I was hesitant ordering online because I've had bad experiences before. The 14 hostas arrived in perfect condition. No broken leaves, very healthy and looking great! I can't wait to plant them. They are much larger than I expected with strong root systems. Great care was taken in how the plants were packaged which provided excellent possible shipping damage protection. Most of the pots have 3 or 4 hostas in each pot. There only 2 pots that have only one plant. Plants arrived in two days. Thank you!!!!
The pots are small ... yes ... but the plants are as bigger than the one I bought from a local green house in a 6" pot. Super healthy (the one in the center and on the right are from GGP. The one on the left from local garden center). They came beautifully packaged and in perfect condition (as have all the plants I have ordered from Great Garden Plants). Thank you GGP!
