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:

With the rough drought of summer, end of July...These plants are thriving AND blooming already!! The blooms are small and white, but does my heart good to see beauty when I walk out my front door!!
My review seems to have disappeared. Plants seem fine, just smaller than expected. I'm used to the plants marked quart at the nursery that are too big to hold in my palm - roughly twice the size of this plant. Very disappointed. It will likely take at least 2 years to reach the quart size found at other nurseries. This is exactly the size of a Ben & Jerry's pint of ice cream.

In regards to size, there is a difference between a dry quart and a liquid quart. Soil is measured in containers by dry volume. One dry quart is approximately 1 1/8 liquid quart, inherently smaller. Maybe around 15 years ago, the government said that plants could no longer be sold by the measurement of their pots, but by their volume. This is actually a better deal for the consumer! Before, when plants were sold by diameter, you could say that the plant was in a 5' inch pot, but that said pot could have been only 1' deep, not a good deal at all. When sold by volume, you know exactly what you are getting. If you fill an empty container with potting mix and then measure it as a dry measurement, you will get a quart. This holds true to quart sized plants sold on our site as well as in your local greenhouse. We hope this helps!
