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 grown this variety of daylily before at my former house. I like their shorter size and pretty light yellow bloom. I wanted to put some in at our new house, but could not find the variety for sale locally. This year I came across them on this site and was willing to take a chance on ordering them. I was shocked how well they were packed and how healthy they looked when they arrived. They were so green and nice I was thinking they might be plastic! Great job!
Hi Donna, we're so happy to hear that you love your new daylilies! Thank you for taking the time to let us know how we're doing.
I ordered two of these "Going Bananas" for their large, low-scape flowers and was delighted with them. The color is a light, bright, sunlight yellow, and the scapes are only about 10" high including the flowers, which is perfect for my 3' wide flowerbed strip between the driveway and the front walkway. The plants were large and full and arrived in perfect condition, and they have rooted well and grown even larger very quickly.
