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:

I have always been happy with the plants I receive from Great Gardens. Today I received a Pugster Blue Butterfly Bush that is just not up to their usual standards. Very crooked trunk, dead wood, and a broken branch. Broke my heart.

I ordered 9 Pugster Blue. Every bush had just been transplanted from a much smaller pot into a one-quart pot. The bushes had lots of broken pieces and have very immature root systems. The bushes appeared to be move into larger pots the day the bushes were packaged for shipment. The outline of the smaller pot was clearly visible and still intact. Also, whoever transplanted the bushes didn't even completely fill the one-quart pot with garden soil.

I planted a few days after receiving. It had blossoms on it on arrival. It hasn’t stopped pushing more & more out since then. I know it’s been scorching here, but this little guy is using it all to make me smile. Very healthy plant, & pretty color.
I purchased three of these plants a little over a year ago and they have produced exactly as they were described...they attract an array of pollinators, including butterflies. Even more impressive is they have more than doubled in size. I have already purchased more in different colors.
