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:

they are surviving through this heat wave in Ark. Can’t wait to see them bloom
The roses I purchased arrived on schedule and I promptly planted them. They had caught on and are blooming already. They are also growing fast, which is what I hoped for. So far, I am very satisfied and intend to purchase more.
These plants are beautiful and doing well. This is the second set of this rose I have purchased and I am very happy with them. They don't grow to tall and over grow each other. Very nice and a beautiful red color.
Just planted these a few weeks ago in very poor soil. Usually I amend the soil but didn’t this time. Have seen nice growth and flowers so far. I did add some fertilizer because of the sandy, clay soil. If they do start to decline I will probably did them up and add good soil.
Hello! We do not recommend amending the soil when you plant. Amending the soil can set back or even kill your plant. Our friends at Proven Winners have an extensive article on this here: https://www.provenwinners.com/learn/how-plant/should-you-amend-your-soil-when-you-plant
