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 plants arrived quickly and in excellent condition. They continue to thrive. I'm curious to see the shrubs when they have matured a bit to see their ultimate size, the flower size, and the evolution of the flower color throughtout the season. Catriona Tudor Erler
One looks sickly but may recover as leaves turned black & some leaves look fine on the top so Im hopeful, while the other looks fine.

I purchased 3 of these 2 years ago and was so pleased, I bought 2 more last year! The foliage is so healthy and the plants are beautiful even when they are not in flower. My original 3 are now 3 feet wide and almost 3 feet tall in just 2 years! I love how when they bloom the color goes from white to pink to red. Fantastic plants!
Small plant in excellent shape. Planted it within one week after arrival and it still looks great. No growth but it is green and appears to be doing well so far.
Plants arrived healthy and are doing well, but it’ll be five years before they look like the picture in the catalogue. I guess I didn’t realize what “one quart container” looked like. Quite expensive for what they are
