Red, I tend to pot on when I get my plants. They will be bigger then for plantIng out bit later.
Dieramas can get reasonably big....as I said, they are essentially grass-like in structure. Mine is about 5' diameter and flower at about 4 to 5'. I would not plant against a hedge or you will lose their form. Best in isolation or maybe with a couple of hardy geraniums (roxanne, orion or jolly bee to.provide brilliant blue flowers all summer long) or other lowish growing perennials. Also a hedge may deprive them of moisture.
I understand your excitement about buying plants .......it's me too....but always best to digest what you have purchased and take stock before further impulsive buys too soon I think
