Real ultimate size of 'Earth Angel' and 'Maraschino Cherry'

luckyladyslipper(MA 5b-6a)August 14, 2014

I have just replanted a small 'Earth Angel' and a largish 'Maraschino Cherry'. They both have to stay where they are, as my age made the current move difficult enough.

How reliable are the general size estimates I have found online?
EA: 48" wide
MC: 36" wide

I'm using what I think are the upper limits, but if they will get bigger than that, I want to know now!

I must have really good soil because my hosta's always seem to get bigger than the stated sizes. I planted a one gallon EA last year and it's 42" across already.

My Earth Angel is 5' in diameter and it's 3 years old. Almost mature. Full shade.
