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:

Hello! Thank you for leaving feedback. 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. They generally spend their first year growing roots in their new home, the second year they have more energy to put into growth, and the third year, they are growing and flowering vigorously. This applies to plants in the garden center as well as plants you purchase online. We hope this helps. Happy Gardening!
All plants arrived in severe stress, some brown leaves. Figured I'd baby them and pray to the plant gods...but to no avail. I have lost them all with only 3 separate blooms.

Arrived healthy & thriving. Tiny blooms are starting to appear. So pleased
Delivered in good condition and I planted quickly in ideal place. The plants are small but healthy a bit small but they didn’t bloom at all. Summer is nearly over and still no sign of buds.
Due to the conditions we keep our greenhouses in, it is likely your phlox already bloomed and had been trimmed back to promote continued root growth. You should have no issue with your plant blooming next season. Happy gardening!
They are great. Delivered quick and growing fine.
