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:

Czechmark Sunny Side Up® weigela (Weigela florida) has all the charm of the weigela you’ve always loved, but more flowers, better color, and a longer blooming time. Proven Winners discovered this extraordinary variety in the Czech Republic (hence the name) where it stood out among hundreds of other weigela.

Plant Czechmark weigela as a specimen or flowering hedge and look forward to a spectacular spring display every year!DetailsBotanical name:Weigela florida 'VUKOZ041323' Patent #: USPP 28,967 Common name: Weigela Zone: 4-8 Sun exposure: Full sun (6+ hours sun) Height x width: 3-4.5' tall and wide Flower color: White, with prominent yellow center Foliage color: Green Season of Interest: Spring Uses: Specimen, hedge, landscaping. How To GrowSoil: Grow in any moist but well-drained soil. Tolerates some dryness once established. Light: Full sun (6+ hrs/day) Water: Average Space: Min. 5' apart. Fertilizing: Apply a granular rose or garden fertilizer in early spring if desired. Never fertilize weigela past mid-summer, as this increases likelihood of winter damage to any new growth the plant puts on as a result. Winterizing: A good 2-3" layer of mulch is recommended. Maintenance & Pruning: Weigela bloom on old wood so should only be pruned after blooming. Once plants are mature (after at least 5 years in the ground), you may want to remove a few of the oldest stems each year to keep it producing vigorous young growth. Note: weigela are one of the last shrubs to leaf out in spring, so don't panic if you aren't seeing signs of life even if everything else in your yard has started to grow.
