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
Purchased 6 Spring 2021. Planted in full North Carolina sun. Did they burn? You bet. Figured wouldn't survive. Barely watered them. Spring 2022 they all came back, although puny, and two each had one flower. Leaves didn't burn. Sigh. Spring 2023 they are all strong and healthy, all covered in glossy green leaves and beautiful white flowers. So there.
Arrived in great shape, I planted as instructed and within a week they don’t look good, unfortunately I think the rabbits are chewing on them.
I sprayed them with a rabbit and deer repellent and am hoping they willleaf out again
We are so glad that your plants arrived in great shape! So sorry about the rabbits eating them, unfortunately Lil Ditty® Dwarf Viburnum is not a rabbit resistant plant, but your use of the deer/rabbit resistant spray should help with the problem! If you still are having an issue with the plant, don't hesitate to email a picture to email@example.com as long as you are within the 60 day guarantee!
We also would recommend shopping our deer and rabbit resistant collection in the future! https://www.greatgardenplants.com/products/deer-rabbit-resistant-perennials-collection
I order a fair amount of specific landscape plants because I’m choosy as to ultimate size and micro climate needs & was pleasantly surprised as to the overall size, quality and health of your plant. Thank you !
I ordered 8 of these. They arrived small, with brown edges or spots on most leaves. I contacted customer service and was told it was just sunburn. The plant says it likes full sun. Kind of doubt any of these will flourish. Bummed.
Hello! We're sorry to hear that you're having trouble with your viburnum. Our horticulture expert has a few recommendations. Make sure that the plant is receiving enough water. Also, we highly recommend watering early in the morning or in the evening avoiding getting water on the leaves. Getting water on the leaves during the hottest part of the day will increase the burn. If you have any additional questions, please reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll be happy to further assist you. Happy Gardening!
