The Q&A Archives: Spacing of Groundcover Plants

Question: Need to know how close together I should plant 'Grace Ward' Lithodora. The area I want to plant is about 40 feet square, and I bought 37 one gallon containers of lithodora. Is that enough to cover the area?

Answer: Lithodora usually grows from 6 to 12 inches high and reaches 3 to 4 feet wide at maturity. Sounds as though you have the right number of plants. For fastest coverage, plant 2 feet apart in a checkerboard pattern. Under the right growing conditions your lithodora will fill in and completely cover the area in about 2 growing seasons.
