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
We planted them at the end of May and by the End of June they were blooming quite nicely. But we noticed these were attached for the rest of the summer by what looks like Red ants. We live in Northern New Jersey and have never seen this before, and in the garden bed mno other plants had this problem. We never saw such red ants before and wonder if they came with the Tuscan Gold sunflower (What state is it a native of). As you can se from the pictures, by August it was pretty beat up.
