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
It's been a few weeks since I transplanted the clematis and both are ready climbing on the trellises! I'm hoping they continue to do well, especially through our Texas summer. They are in a semi-shady spot, so I think they'll be fine.
One plant was nice sized and has grown well, but one stem did get wilt just as it was going strong, but rest of plant is well and a bud is showing. Second plant was small, but growing well--unfortunately grasshoppers like it. Waiting for next year when the plants have settled in more, but so far I am pleased.
Might be my fault idk but very small and didnt make it

I purchased two Diamond Ball Clematis plants and both are not doing very well. They are tiny and seem to be barely alive…. Do you have any suggestions how to revive, re-energize and boost the growth? The plants are getting plenty of water and enough morning sun.
Hello! Thank you for including a photo of your Clematis. These plants are notorious for being slow growers at first. They spend a lot of time investing energy into their root system first, and then they take off in your garden. We think that you may be overwatering and the plants might not be getting enough sunlight. We recommend slowing down on the watering and see if that helps. Happy Gardening!
The plant was packed and shipped with care and arrived in amazing condition. I had four big beautiful blooms within two weeks. Incredible.
