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
Excellent plants arrived—a little bigger than I expected. Now growing & thriving. Very fast delivery.
Love pennsylvania sedge, very pretty, covers well and the rabbits don’t like this one.
The Sedge arrived perfect. I planted them and they took well but it has been too hot here. Even watering daily the grasses died. I will try them again maybe in the fall to see if that will be a better time to plant them.
PA sedge plants arrived in great condition, and they look good, with very little care, on the shady slope where I planted them. The proof will be in the pudding next spring, of course, but if these are thriving, I shall order more. Thx!
My problem is less with the sedge itself than it is with the lack of response from customer service. I ordered a dozen plants - eight of them are doing okay; four show no sign of life at all. I sent an inquiry and got zero response.
