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:

The plants arrived in excellent condition. With very good directions and tips. I have planted them and looking forward to seeing them grow and bloom next year.
Tiny but healthy
I planted it in Miracle grow soil with the moisture control beads and made sure it stayed moist. It’s in a protected area partly shady and it’s doing great, new growth after one month.
So far they are all looking healthy. We are not expecting blooms this summer.
