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
My order arrived as healthy well packaged potted plants which was a tremendous shock! I expected bare root but these were fabulous! I will absolutely be purchasing again! The plants are very healthy and are thriving already!
I put in one, purchased directly from PW in 09/20, and it's just this season really taking off (sleep, creep, leap really evidencing itself with this plant). This is a plus in my book, having spent no small amount of effort digging out a couple of rampant, suckering, monster-blob shrubs in other parts of the yard. The several additional ones I've subsequently ordered here look great and will be perfect for my purposes: spaced along a fence to provide additional privacy & sound blocking... with the added benefit of flowers for bees & maybe even hummers!
Thank you so much for replacing my plant with a new healthy plant. The plant is doing very well in my garden. I'm looking forward to the scented blooms as it matures.
