|I have just purchased 2 of these marvelous shrubs and need to know what their approximate annual rate of growth is in a full sun location. I haven't found that info anywhere, but am assuming the growth will be somewhat slow since the plant is a dwarf.

|Elaeocarpus decipiens ?MonProud? is a slow grower, reaching 8-10' at maturity. You can expect less than 6" of new growth per year. It grows faster in full sunshine with adequate water and nutrients than it does in partial shade in less than ideal conditions.
