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 had a few plants that didn't make it and Great Plants offer a 60 refund. I contacted CSR and without hesitation, they replaced my plants. They're growing and thriving and I couldn't be happier. I will only buy from Great Garden Plants.
Disappointed in both the sensational lavender and praire fountain.planted in ideal locations with every opportunity to thrive, but still waiting. Lavender is dying off and the grass has not grown at all. The weather has been ideal.

Thought it was full hot sun. But it is just not growing. It's not dead so maybe I can still move it.
Hello! Thank you for your feedback. This speedwell is a full sun plant and will flower best in conditions of 6+ hours of sunlight a day. We've been noticing a lot of gardeners not keeping their plants well watered. We recommend checking the soil daily. If the plant becomes stressed from too little, or too much, water, it can severely limit root growth. Soil should be nicely moist but never wet or soggy nor powdery and dry. All newly planted shrubs, trees, and perennials need regular watering for their first season. Pay particular attention during hot, dry weather.
While you may not see the plant growing above ground, a lot is happening below the surface. When transplanting young plants from a nursery pot to a garden, the plant allocates more energy to root development instead of shoot development (above ground). It's important for them to develop a robust root system so they can actually absorb the nutrients and water in the soil around them. Then after their root system is more developed they'll invest in their shoots and flower development.
So sad...the Magic Show Pink Potion Spike Speedwell plant did not make it. I will need to try something else.
