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
Plants arrived in perfect shape. Instruction sheet was clear and concise. Every plant is thriving. Met my highest expectations in all regards. Ordered more of the same plant.
I planted a number of these in a shaded border--they seem to have taken well...the color is eye-catching, and I'll highlight them with some bright green plantings in spring. They make a very different appearance--a nice pop of color.
We live in Texas, got them in the ground asap. Even though it was September we had some hot days and the leaves burnt up. I hope they recover and make it next year

I have recently bought plants from Great Garden Plants and have been most pleased with the quality of the stock, excellent packaging, and nice people with whom to deal. Kudos to a very good site.
They look pretty under my weeping Elm tree! Can't wait for the Frosted Berry ones to be in stock, as they will be planted with the purple ones.
