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:

I have done mail order before, and have been so disappointed. The plants that I have ordered from you have been packaged well, look great, and have settled into their new home flawlessly. Thank you!
Plants are doing okay.
Goatsbeard arrived in great health. I planted in with a day or two and all 4 are doing great. I actually have a blossom on one of the little darlings - after only about a month in the ground.
Although I am really happy with the plants I felt a little taken by the ordering. I did the BOGO deal, but apparently that only applied to one plant. I bought 3 and got one free. I was expecting to pay for 2 and get two. Beware.
Hello! We're sorry you had trouble with checkout. When we offer BOGO sales, you need to add plants to your cart in increments of two. If you ever have trouble or questions, please reach out to us at email@example.com or 877-477-4769 and we will happily make sure your order is exactly how you're expecting it. Happy Gardening!

Happy with delivery
The plants arrived in great condition and were well-protected by the packaging. I bought 4 of these total and all 4 are doing great
I planted this Chantilly Lace Goatsbeard from Great Garden Plants last September in my northern Wisconsin woodlands garden (read: lots of munching deer). Look at it in early June! A beautiful plant, ready to bloom. Just spectacular. And, importantly, the deer are leaving it alone.
