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 received my plants a few weeks ago. They were packaged very sturdily almost to the point where I almost tore the plants up trying to get them out of their packaging. Other than that, the plants are growing nicely so far.
All plants are thriving now and growing beautifully. The three Blackeyed Susan’s that you replaced are looking happy too. Thank you for your quick response and replacement.
The plants arrived and looked in good condition, but when I remove the pots, I found each was extremely root-bound. I had to work at unwinding the roots before planting. They struggled for awhile, but seem to be recovering. I am looking forward to blooms later in the summer.
Hi there! We understand that root bound plants can be frustrating to deal with, but we always emphasize that a strong and robust root system is fundamental to plant growth.
