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:

DescriptionHostas have become a garden staple, and with 'Undulata Albomarginata,' it's easy to see why. Simple to grow, low maintenance, and all-around easy to look at, hosta is the perfect addition to gardens and containers in need of foliage interest. Grows in both shade and part sun, but happiest in part sun, this hosta is ideal for dappled light areas. Medium green leaves are variegated with wavy white margins, look stunning when paired with other perennials. In summer, pale purple flowers float above the foliage, adding extra interest. One of the first hosta to appear in spring, you'll get to enjoy this lush beauty all season long, whether you mix it in a flower bed or add it to a container. Hosta are incredibly forgiving and versatile!DetailsBotanical name:Hosta 'Undulata Variegata' Common name: Hosta Zone: 3 - 9 Sun exposure: Shade (<4 hours sun), Part-sun (4-6 hours sun) Height x width: 1-3 feet x 1-3 feet Flower color: Lavender Foliage color: Green with white margins Season of Interest: Summer Uses: Accent, Border, Container gardening, Foundation planting, Massing, Specimen, WoodlandHow To GrowSoil: Performs well in average to fertile soil.

Winterizing: Foliage should be left standing in fall, this will help protect the crown. If desired a layer of mulch can be applied in a 2" layer very near the base. Maintenance & pruning: Groom plants by removing yellow or dead leaves and cut flower spikes back as they finish blooming in summer.
