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 had my doubts. My soil is not the best, but I had tried Roxanne cranesbill from a local nursery with good results. I hadn't been able to find more locally, so I took a chance. Wow! I'm amazed. Not only did they take to not great soil (unamended & clayish) but they have flowered and seem to be flourishing immensely. I am more than happy with this purchase. Cold weather is upon us and I sure do hope they come back next spring and summer because they are gorgeous!
Plants looked great when they came, planted tight away. They have grown 5 times original size & are blossoming.
The replacement plants are thriving beautifully. They have been producing blooms as soon as they acclimated to the new soil.
