The spacings (the distance between the plants) recommended above should enable the plants of the same genera to cover the ground in 2-3 years.

From Hurrells Specialist Seed in the UK, who also sell the following Landscaping Grass Seed and Wildflower Seed:-

"Many of our historic Wild Flower species have been lost over the last generation, in fact nationally 97% of meadows present in the 1940s have disappeared.  This loss has been matched with a decline in bird and butterfly species.  We supply a great range of mixtures - 'designed for success wild flower mixtures' using only guaranteed English Native wild flowers:-

"Founded by Nick Macer, Pan-Global Plants is a specialist plant nursery located in the Severn Valley of Gloucestershire", which sells Ptelea trifoliata and you have to collect it from the nursery.

"Pan Global’ provides an inspiring selection of the finest, most desirable and often rarest plants capable of growing on these isles. Many nurseries use the words ‘rare’ and ‘unusual’, but here we mean it in it’s true sense."

"The Walled Garden is the home of Pan-Global Plants, which houses Nick's personal collection of rare plants. In this section you can see how it has developed since 2004."

Maybe he collects these plants from his Planthunting Expeditions around the world, before growing them in England for you to enjoy the privilege to buy and use them in your garden.
