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:

DetailsBotanical name:Rosa 'ChewDelight' Patent #: USPPAF Common name: Rose, Landscape rose, Shrub rose, Hulthemia Zone: 4 - 8 Sun exposure: Sun (> 6 hours sun) Height x width: 2-3' tall and wide Flower color: Pink with red centers Foliage color: Green Season of interest: Summer - fall Bloom time: Summer Features: Proven winners, heat tolerant, container plants, cold tolerant, low flammability Uses: Accent, border, container gardening, cottage gardening, foundation planting, hedge, massing, ornamental, specimen How To GrowSoil: Though they can withstand some dryness, roses perform best in well-draining soils with regular water. Light: Sun (> 6 hours sun) Water: One inch of water per week throughout their first growing season. A generous layer of organic mulch (compost or composted manure) helps keep the soil evenly moist. If the weather is dry in the fall, be sure to water roses well. Never allow the foliage to remain wet into the evening; water early in the day. Spacing: 3 -4' Fertilizing: To keep the flowers coming, feed your roses with a fertilizer blended especially for roses. Follow package directions for timing and rates. Winterizing: Roses benefit from 2-3" of shredded bark mulch for winter. In warm areas, you may prune in fall, winter, or early spring; in cold climates, prune in spring, just as the new growth begins to emerge on the stems. Maintenance & pruning: Cut the whole plant back by one-third to half its total height in spring. This ensures the growth for the year comes from the big, thick buds the plant created earlier the previous season. Cut just above where a healthy bud is emerging. Deadheading (removing old flowers) is not required but is not harmful if you wish to do so.
