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:

DescriptionIt looks like a painting, but Cityline® Mars bigleaf hydrangea (Hydrangea macrophylla) is totally real! Each big, mophead bloom is comprised of dozens of two-toned florets: white with violet or white with red-pink, depending on your soil – but either way, it’s beautiful! Big, glossy, showy foliage gives this plant a robust, almost tropical look in the landscape.
The Cityline series of bigleaf hydrangeas were developed in Germany and selected by Proven Winners for their compact size, super colorful blooms, and disease resistance. You cannot go wrong, adding this showstopper to your landscape!DetailsBotanical name:Hydrangea macrophylla 'Ramars' Common name: Bigleaf hydrangea, Mophead hydrangea, Florist's hydrangea, Hortensia Zone: 5 - 9 Sun exposure: Sun in cool areas (6+ hours sun); part-sun (4-6 hours sun) in warm climates. Height x width: 2-3' tall and wide Flower color: White with purple or white with pink (see below for more info) Foliage color: Glossy deep green Season of Interest: Summer Uses: Flower gardens, landscaping, specimen, flowering hedge. How To GrowSoil: Average, medium moisture, well-drained soils. Mulch to conserve moisture and buffer soil temperatures. Light: Most varieties tolerate full sun in the North, but benefit from afternoon shade. Tolerates full sun only if grown with consistent moisture. In the South, plants require afternoon shade. Intolerant of drought, with foliage tending to decline considerably in dry conditions. Water: Water to keep soil moist, but not wet. Spacing: 2-3 feet Fertilizing: Fertilize once in spring with a granular rose fertilizer. Make a second application in early summer if desired. Winterizing: Do not prune. A 2-3" layer of shredded bark mulch is sufficient winter protection. Maintenance & Pruning: Avoid pruning except to remove any obviously dead wood in spring, when the new growth has emerged. Though this type of hydrangea blooms on old and new wood, it's best to avoid pruning it for the most flowers and best performance. Mature plants may be selectively thinned, removing one-third of the oldest branches each late winter.
