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:

I ordered/paid for quart size plants - seven Russian Sage and three Speedwell ground cover. What you sent was tiny plug plants that you must have popped into quart size pots on the way out the door. When I took each plant out of the pot, the dirt fell away to reveal the tiny plants (on every single one of these plants!). The ground cover plants did not make it. The sage plants are still alive. You should be refunding me at least the difference of the cost between "plug size plants” and “quart size plants”, as you definitely did NOT ship what I paid for!

I received 2 of these plants in late April. They didn't look the greatest and I didn't think they'd make it. But they seem to be doing alright. No flowers yet but they are starting to slowly spread. We will see!
Disappointing: My last order was exceptional, this one not very good. I am going to blame part of it on the Texas heat and a delay in delivery. Temperatures have been 100+ , I can only imagine in a vehicle . Some of the plants are made for heat and they did ok, but most are shade plants. Never dealt with these flowers and ordered by the picture. What I got looked nothing like the picture, other than the label. Foliage is extremely low less than 1/2 inch tall and looks more like a creeping juniper or something. Don't think it would be something I would like anyway if that's what it grows into. One already dead and the other looks bad and will probably die in another week or two. Reminds me more of Texas goat head stickers.

Hoping this plant takes off like the description stated. It's still early stages, but alive and thriving!
Hello! Thank you for leaving feedback. When transplanting young plants from a nursery pot to a garden, the plant allocates more energy to root development instead of shoot development (above ground). It's important for them to develop a robust root system so they can actually absorb the nutrients and water in the soil around them. Then after their root system is more developed they'll invest in their shoots and flower development. They generally spend their first year growing roots in their new home, the second year they have more energy to put into growth, and the third year, they are growing and flowering vigorously. This applies to plants in the garden center as well as plants you purchase online. We hope this helps. Happy Gardening!
