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
These are nice if small plants, but I have been disappointed they had been recently pruned severely. They seemed shocked and have yet to sprout new shoots. That wasn't necessary for them to fit in the shipping carton. I suspect they were pruned so the cutting could be rooted for future sales.
We're sorry you are not satisfied with your plants! We do note that all of our plants are young on each product page and on our plant sizes page https://www.greatgardenplants.com/pages/sizes. The size and maturity of the plants varies widely depending on the time of the year you purchased and if they were recently trimmed. The important thing when it comes to purchasing plants, whether online or in a garden center, is that they have a full, robust root system, and that's what we prioritize in our greenhouses. The more roots a plant has, the more energy it can put into growing once it is planted in your garden. We do keep our plants trimmed to encourage strong root development!
Have not planted for it has been toooo hot down here. Heat index close to 120 last 2 weeks. Will nurse inside until heat breaks. Blooming away
They came healthy and are doing well. One already has buds.
The plants came in good shape, many buds and damp, planted and they have bloomed, still a few blooms yet to pop, the plants are smaller than ones bought locally but expect they will grow quickly and by next year they will look good
My plants arrived healthy and very much alive.I unboxed and planted within 48hours.They are doing fantastic,even in the current heatwave.Id definitely order from this company in the future!
