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
I bought 5 of these as 1 quart size on March 26, 2021. They arrived around 4/6 in fair condition with a few buds but we small and tiny and underwhelming at first sight. I unpacked them right away but couldn’t plant them for about 2 weeks. I did water them them in a nice spot until I could get to them and made sure they had sun.
When I finally planted them mid April 2021 I made sure to put them in a very sunny spot with lots of space and mixed up my soil with some fresh dirt, compost and fertilizer. I also set up a sprinkler with a timer to water them every morning at 5am. They were super tiny little things, but in either weeks or a month I would get a flower or two. Now, after 6 months they are all thriving and have grown about 4-5xs their size and have flowered again and again. It’s amazing to see how well they have performed their first season and how much they have grown. I can’t wait to see them come back in the spring. I also just bought 6 more different kinds of rose bushes from GGP to plant before the first frost - and hopefully they will do just as well. I can’t wait to see I how these do next year and am very optimistic about their life in my garden.. Very very happy with my purchase!!!
Photos of the plants after just 6 months! And the size and scope of the new quart ones I jus got to let you see how tiny they came vs how big they are now. In fact, all but 2 of my GGPs out of 50 before todays arrival are thriving, and they replaced the 2 that were not without question! So now I just bought more. including the 3 little new roses mentioned above, I got a shipment of 23 new plants today! So I’ve bought 73 plants this year now! They are all doing better than even the bigger roses bushes and other plants I have bought locally. Also, planting a quart size plant is so much easier than a gallon or 3! Very happy with this company and the results and the customer service if anything goes wrong.
I have purchased several plants and have good luck with all of them. They arrived in great shape. Plan to buy more in the spring
