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
I purchased 2 of these spring 2021. They survived a zone 5 winter and a dog leash brushing over them every day. There were no blooms this spring but I wasn’t expecting any in their first year. The fall color is beautiful!! I have them in part sun as some of my foundation shrubs.
Hate to leave a rating as it's hard to know where the problem lies. Plants all looked great when they arrived. I planted them all on the same day, on the same tier of the garden. All received the same care. One is dead, one is dying (fingers crossed), and the third is doing well. I'll see how the ill one does and we may reorder.
