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
The flowers on my plant are more white than pink. However, the plant is very healthy and blooming!
Hello! There are a lot of factors that go into flower color. Once the plant adjusts to your garden, you should see pink blooms. Happy Gardening!
All plants I got died. Company replaced one. I thoroughly followed their advice for planting plus I love gardening and have lots of other plants. An other words I know how to treat plants. ALL of them died so my advice don’t waste your money and find plants at your local nursery. I think they were poorly packaged and poorly handelt. Super disappointed ☹️ Oh yes the plants already arrived brown and half dead

The plants I received that were marked 1quart on the site are actually pint sized. Anyone as familiar with Ben & Jerry's as I am will well know the size of a pint vs a quart. Plants appear healthy but the "quart" container and plant together are roughly the size of an open hand and should have been about $5 each.
Expected plants to be larger and not half dead.

I placed an order for Potentilla plants. Shipping was delayed due to Fed Ex error and the plants arrived dried out and dead looking. I sent pictures and tracking information to Great Garden Plants and they responded immediately asking if I wanted new plants or a refund. My new plants were shipped out promptly. The error was not theirs but they made sure that I was satisfied with my purchase. New plants arrived without issue and look great!
