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:

Top 10 Long-Blooming Shrubs
Do you dream of a flower-filled landscape or garden with never-ending beauty? We do, too: that’s why we’ve compiled a list of our favorite long-blooming shrubs! Start your planting with these ten flowering shrubs that provide months instead of weeks of colorful blooms.
These are doing well where I planted them. One was oddly shaped, but hopefully will fill out nicely. They were very dry when they arrived, but I kept them in the house for a week and watered as needed.
Low Scape Mound® Aronia
Great addition to my garden
I've purchased several Low Scape Mound Arena to make a border in front of a patio fence. It's a small area, so I needed something that wouldn't take over the area. I also wanted something that would provide a 3 to 4 season showing and these sounded exactly what I was looking for. They were very healthy upon arrival and are thriving in my garden! I can't wait to see them bloom and for their leaves to change color in the fall. I'll update more pictures when that happens.
Plants arrived in great shape. Really like this little shrub. Nice spring flowers and attractive foliage the rest of the season.

Plants came in great shape and after planting have been a little confused with weather ups and downs displaying some red leaves but are becoming more acclimated to our conditions and I am hopeful for their future development
Thanks for being a wonderful place to buy beautifully cared for plants
