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:

The leaves are delicate and slow-growing but a very beautiful plant.
Both plants are doing very well. I love their texture and gentle, airy look. One plant was a little questionable when it arrived, but once planted it flourished. I've had several people comment on how pretty they are.
Just what my flower garden needed.
The silver mounds that I ordered arrived quickly, packaged well , and shipped with no damage They were beautiful when I unpackaged them and they are still beautiful after being planted for a while now. They have tripled in size. Thank you and I will be ordering again and again.

Give them a chance
Bought silver mounds last year, didn't know if they would take. Cut them back for the winter. All four are gorgeous this year! Envy of the neighborhood.
