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:

My St. John's Wort Sunny Boulevard is doing GREAT in my Rock Garden here in Texas. I have planted it up against the fence with river rock as mulch.
I previously ordered the same plants from another nursery. They cancelled my order and took a month to refund me. With this nursery I received my plants very quickly and they were gorgeous and are thriving in my garden. Very happy!
