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 was a struggle at first but they've come back and are flourishing ✨️
I received the plant and it was in good shape. When I went to plant it, I was disappointed to find out that the 1 quart pot the plant was in contained a 1-1/4-inch x 1-1/4- inch plug. It had not rooted in the 1 quart pot at all. I find this to be a bit deceitful considering what I paid for it. I nearly lost the plant to drying out but it is recovering and and I need to water it every day.
So far so good
I've been redoing my landscape since we've lost several trees. Our landscape went from almost all shade to all direct sun. I've received several perennials and shrubs from Great Garden Plants. They were all healthy when they arrived. All were planted within a day or two and they look wonderful in the garden. Next year, I'll be adding a new flowerbed in my backyard, so I'll be buying from them again. I like the size if the containers; I don't have to dig a huge hole for each. It takes some time for them to grow to maturity, but that's OK. I enjoy seeing them grow.
Not sure this plant will survive. It came to me a little damaged, even though all 4 plants I ordered were meticulously packaged, and since May, it hasn't grown much at all. It is planted in the right ph soil and gets intermittent sun throughout the day.
Not sure what else I can do for this little fella, except wait and see.
Hello! Thank you for leaving a review of your Bleeding Heart. When transplanting young plants from a nursery pot to a garden, the plant allocates more energy to root development instead of shoot development (above ground). It's important for them to develop a robust root system so they can actually absorb the nutrients and water in the soil around them. Then after their root system is more developed they'll invest in their shoots and flower development. They generally spend their first year growing roots in their new home, the second year they have more energy to put into growth, and the third year, they are growing and flowering vigorously. This applies to plants in the garden center as well as plants you purchase online. We hope this helps. Happy Gardening!
