I have goumi growing in two locations, Cape Cod, MA (zone 6-maybe 7) and
western mass (zone 5-maybe 6). They are both growing very slow and have
gotten to 3 feet in 3 years. Im amazed to hear of plants getting to 12 feet
in two years. Are you sure they aren't E. umbellata? (Thats how fast my
autumn olives grow) Or maybe my goumi aren't inoculated with the right
rhizobia or something...


Leverett, Ma --zone 5, heading towards 6
