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
Was disappointed in how trimmed it was, so very small
We're sorry you are not satisfied with your plants! We do note that all of our plants are young on each product page and on our plant sizes page https://www.greatgardenplants.com/pages/sizes.The size and maturity of the plants varies widely depending on the time of the year you purchased and if they were recently trimmed. The important thing when it comes to purchasing plants, whether online or in a garden center, is that they have a full, robust root system, and that's what we prioritize in our greenhouses. The more roots a plant has, the more energy it can put into growing once it is planted in your garden. We do keep our plants trimmed to encourage strong root development!
I bought 5 of these lovely little plants. They were very well packaged, and arrived extremely healthy looking, one was even blooming! I let them acclimate for 2 days as suggested, and then planted them. They are doing very well so far, and the color of the bloom is so beautiful. I will definitely purchase from them again!
Perfecto Mundo® Double Pink Reblooming Azalea
I ordered this Perfecto Mundo Double ReBlooming Azalea to replace one damaged by big-foot - the original plant being stepped on and broken. It joins 9 others along our front foundation bed. Let me tell you - this plant will not disappoint. It blooms from early spring until the first freeze. Here in zone 7b that is March to January! It is an amazing plant and cannot wait until mine reach maturity. I fertilize and water them as needed. They will repay me with soft pink blossoms for 9-10 months. Wow!
Bought two of these in different colors this Spring. Planted them in a huge pot together. One looks great, but the other is dying. Don’t understand this. Same pot (plenty of room), same soil, same water, same sun exposure, and no pests. Haven’t bloomed yet.
Hello! We're sorry to hear that you're having trouble with your Azalea. Is there any chance the struggling plant was exposed to a herbicide or pesticide, maybe from spraying nearby? We've also seen this sort of damage when a pet urinates on a plant. This could also be happening because the potting mix is pulling away from the edge of the container, keeping water from fully absorbing into the soil. If this plant was planted recently, we suggest gently lifting out the plant and checking the roots. Is there any new growth that appears healthy? If so, the plant should bounce back. If you have any additional questions, don't hesitate to reach out to us at email@example.com. We do offer a 60-day guarantee on all of our plants. If you received your plant within that timeframe and the azalea does not pull through we would be happy to refund your purchase or send you a replacement. Happy Gardening!
