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:

DescriptionEndless Summer® BloomStruck Hydrangea (Hydrangea macrophylla) earns its name from the repeat blooms that last from early summer into fall! This cultivar blooms on old wood and new wood, which means longer bloom times in warm and cold climates. Little or no pruning is required to enjoy the prolific blooms.
Mophead flowers reach 4-5 inches across and can be a rich blue, purple, or pink depending on your soil pH. These long-lasting flowers are perfect for adding color to cut flower arrangements!

Light: Part-sun (4-6 hours sun). They especially enjoy morning sun and afternoon shade. Water: Water to keep soil moist, but not wet. Not tolerant of drought, so don't allow the soil to dry out.
