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:

Received 3 Let's Dance Rhythmic Blue Hydrangeas on Friday the 13th 0f Oct.2023. Put them out in a shaded part of a flower garden till I could plant them. All three came in in good shape. Planted them Oct. 17th in a garden that gets morning sun and afternoon shade; all day sun is too hot here in Arizona. They went thru shock and are now setting new leaves. Hopefully they will be established enough to make it thru the winter with a lot of mulch to keep them warm.
Wonderful plants, I have 2...they are growing nicely...I can't wait to plant them...
These guys arrived small and in really nice condition. I didn't get to plant them right away but kept them out of direct sun and watered and they did fine. Planted them in a narrow bed around my bay window. They didn't do so well over the summer but I was hand-watering and other, better established hydrangeas in this area did fine. Even still, they tried to crank out the blooms - I got 3-4 blooms on tiny plants and they kept trying to put out new leaves. All plants survived the heat and a major freeze. This is a north facing bed but we just had a record hot summer so I'm hoping for them improve this year with better established root growth.
The hydrangea seems to be doing fine, but all four lavender plants died. Some things are probably better bought local...
My plant’s came packed very good, they were good looking plants. I had ordered several different kinds of Hydrangea’s. These 2 died about after a week or so. I would like to try them again, I hope they make it right.
