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 ordered this about a month ago. It's to fill in between other creeping phlox that was planted years ago. Hopefully this will fill in nicely over time.
I love Phlox so much. These Phlox will be a good addition to my collection. Right now they are dormant "sleeping" but are nice and green. Can't wait to next year.
I’m very upset that none of my plants haven’t grown or even came up.

I followed the planting instructions carefully, but they seemed to have a tough time. They got really brown really fast. Not sure if it'll make it. I did order several other phlox varieties and those all took really well.

The plants did not look that healthy when they arrived. I planted them, and they seem to be struggling. All other plants I ordered were fine.
