Q.How High Can An Elaeagnus Ebbingei Limelight Grow?

Zone Hungary, Central Europe | h.otto added on June 6, 2020 | Answered

On the internet I see many different max heights for this shrub. From 1.5m, 2-3m, 3-4m, even 5m. On your site (https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/shrubs/elaeagnus/how-to-grow-elaeagnus-limelight.htm) 5m is written. Is this height from experience, or what kind of source? On the label I got with this plant, it says “Fully grown: 7 years 1.5m”. Its registration number is NL 21145. What is the truth? Thank you
