How far apart do you space them? How big do you let...

I have some that I have planted on 3' centers, and others that are stand alones. I let the stand alones get huge. 7-8' high and 5-6' wide.

I am wondering now if the newly planted ones are too close.

How far apart do you space them? How big do you let them get?

Well..if you trim the huge ones they will be shrubbyier.If were planted close I imagine could grow as hedge if that was an a idea.They all grow a lil different and also depends on the soil.the richer& moisture the better it is.
I don't have any grown together,but have thought about it.I have a few stand alones,but most are like a backbone stuck here& here& there.I had one grow 10 ft this year....and next year I'll keep that one shrubby.The 1st yr hubby "accidently" topped it in half when it was just reaching 2 ft.I actually liked the way it grew that way better.It had alot more flowers,but we were dryer this year also.
