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
It is about 8 inches wide already; I am impressed and pleased with this buy. I can't wait to see what it will be like in about 1 year or so.
3 of the 4 are trying to thrive but the smallest one of the bunch died within 10 days. These get a lot of afternoon sun but I don’t think they should be considered a full sun plant. I think more than 6 hours is just too much. Hoping the 3 can hold on through the dog days of summer!
We're sorry to hear about your experience! Stonecrop definitely appreciates some afternoon shade in harsh sun and heat exposure in very hot summer regions. Please email pictures of the plants to email@example.com. 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!
Even in the current drought (that has thankfully passed) my plants took to the soil and perked up immediately. I'm looking forward to the splash of pink color in my planting beds.
Arrived in great condition and they are doing great even though we are struggling with a lack of rain. I just love the color and they fit perfectly in my garden.
Plants arrived very healthy looking. They have been planted for a month now and are doing great! Be sure to follow the instructions before planting.
