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:

Our Guide for Fall Planting
The start of fall may signal the gardening season is coming to a close, but it’s not over yet! There is still plenty of time to enjoy colorful flowers and foliage or even sprinkle in some new perennials and shrubs before winter arrives.
Ordered and received 6; 2 died by summer's end due to being sucked dry by nearby spruces while the remaining 4 are performing perfectly. The deer have ignored them even at this youthful stage of growth, and the young trees have kept their shape well despite having to fend off prevailing NW winds and weather. I am confident they will fulfill their task of creating a natural property boundary. Very nice foliage. Arrived beautifully packaged and in excellent condition.
