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:

I wanted a pollinator friendly native hydrangea, but something a little different from Annabelle. Invincibelle Lace was just perfect! It poured for a few days after being planted near a thirsty maple, but it’s settled in and I can’t wait to see it next spring! Thanks for sending such healthy plants!
The plant is in a bigger pot since I came in and doubled. I am switching over my garden to hydrangas. Love them. Not so gdfor flowering this though, great growth, good leaf color, but flowers are rare. My lime light and strawberry cream tonscof flowers. Hmmmm.
So sad! It didn’t make it.

Both of these two plants are doing great. Can't wait till spring.
Still has not kicked in after two weeks. It has been very hot here in the Northeast. Western exposure. I have given it a little shade, some constant moisture and a good helping of compost and leaf mulch. My gut feeling is that this will be a beauty. It’s a tough time of year to transplant.
The packing was excellent and the soil was still moist. Well pruned.
Wish me luck.
