Winter snowman and joy Size

I"m seeing a lot of conflicting information about the size of Winter's joy and Snowman, which I bought but can still return.

Tag from Camforest says 12 feet, but no width. Some websites say half that.

And width?

Hello, geedavey. I do not grow those two but below are some people who, at one time, said they were growing them. Feel free to send them a GardenwebMail.

Thanks. I called CamToo, and they said 4-6 feet wide and that they could get that tall with time.

These were both bred by Ackerman. In his book "Beyond the Camellia Belt" he says that both have a tendency to be somewhat columnar. He says that after fifteen years they will be 4 ft wide and 10 or 11 feet tall. I hope this helps.
