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:

'Denim 'n Lace'--These plants have a wonderful scent! They have established themselves in my garden and I can hardly wait for them to bloom! They were a "Find" and I am happy to have them!
The Russian Sage arrived promptly and in excellent condition. Once planted I have noticed they are S L O W growers, but once pruned they stand upright as wanted. I recommend Great Garden to anyone wanting exceptional service and beautiful plants.
I received nice healthy plants! Can't wait to get them planted!
I bought two plants rather late in the summer. Followed instructions and am in the “sleep, creep, leap” stage. Except…one is already blooming!!! So Healthy!
Love this Russian sage. I was pleasantly surprised when all three plants started flowering as soon as I transplanted them into my garden. With adequate sun, moisutre and fertilizer, all three, though quite small, continued to perform throughout the entire summer! My gosh, we weren't expecting to see such color until the following year. Alas, they are performing spectacularly in their very first year. Can't wait to see what next year brings!
