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:

Arrives as young plant
I realize that it is tough to ship live plants. The plants were a nice size and healthy. The problem is that during shipping, the plants were bouncing back and forth in the box, and a few of them were really smashed and broken on their tops. I did my best to remove the damaged parts and I hope they will recover.
We apologize that you received plants that are not up to our standards. While we try our best to provide exceptional service, some factors, like shipping and handling, are outside our control, and issues like this can sometimes happen. Please email pictures of the plants to email@example.com, making sure to put your order number and name in the subject line so that we may provide the best assistance possible. Rest assured, we have a 60-day guarantee on all our plants. If you received your plants within that timeframe, we would be happy to apply your warranty once we receive the pictures. Happy Gardening!
I put the shrub in a planter for now to give it a chance to grow. So far it is doing great. Flower buds have formed and that tells me the root system is healthy. I will be placing the shrub in a large area later depending on its size by fall. I could delay til spring if I can protect the roots with cold protection during the winter.
Product arrived in fine shape, but between deer and 6A conditions, there wasn't a green leaf left after a few weeks.
Hi Kevin, We're sorry to hear that the deer enjoyed your viburnum before you could! It sounds like your plant is still alive. Unfortunately, once deer have found a meal in your garden, they are likely to return. The most cost effective solution is a deer repellent spray. You'll need to apply it periodically because they do tend to wash away with rainfall. Although no plant can truly be deer proof, we do have a variety of deer resistant plants in our Deer Resistant collection here: https://www.greatgardenplants.com/collections/deer-resistant
Beautiful plants that are growing everyday. We have planted them as a hedge. Your customer service and shipment of plants is the best.
