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
well, I tackled a new area this year. the dead dry place next to pond. I rototilled, amended soil, landscape cloth, drip system and the I put 3 of these intermixed with another 3 Double Play Big Bang® Spirea that I ordered. All arrived healthy and they got into the ground about a week after arriving.
I appreciate the thoughtfulness of the packaging. I know some have complained but the genius way the plastic bag is covering the soil and keeping the plant IN the container along with what moisture can be trapped is appreciated.
My shrubs arrived in perfect health, and they are now thriving in my yard. I am so excited to nurture these beautiful shrubs to glorious maturity. Witherod viburnums are such beautiful shrubs. Everyone should have one … or two … or three ….
I ordered two plants.....one came all perky and ready to plant. One was sickly so I did not plant it. (I think it was a Fedex issue.) I called about 3 weeks after because I was trying to nurse it back to health but it did not make it. I contacted the company and sent a picture and within 15 minutes I had the shipment order for a new one at no charge. It was so awesome to deal with a company that really cares about their customers. I cannot wait to get more plants from them. Thank you!
I loved the way each of my plants was packages and delivered. Very safe and quick. However for the price I had expected much larger plants, like what I could get at a local greenhouse. So far only 3 of my 4 plants have survived the transplant even though we followed proper techniques and have a drip system in place. I will probably order again if only because the varieties I'm looking for are not available near me.
Very healthy plant.
