I've gotten 2 different answers and I'm hoping you can help me out. The height on the Dwarf Korean Lilac say 4-5 ft. The Sargent Crabapple says 6-8 ft. Is that height from the ground or the the start of the branches? Any info will help. Thanks

Height is measured from the ground up. So, the Dwarf Korean Lilac will be a total of 5' from the tip of the very top to the ground. Branches can start almost anywhere on the main trunk. The Crabapple will be a total of 8' from the ground to the top of the tree. Again, it doesn't matter where the branching starts, the overall height will be a maxium of 8'. Hope this clarifies things for you!
