Depends how old they are. Can you call the 800-number of the nursery to see what they say? I have not grown them from a quart size but others have reported growth of several feet on year 1... if planted in the Spring. Being a paniculata, it could bloom on year 1 as well, if it is old enough when shipped and if it is shipped in the Spring.
