      Don't think it is meant to be more yellow.
      Looks very happy and healthy.
      It may be Elaeagnus pungens Hosoba Fukurin ..with a narrow band of variegation.

        I am pretty sure that your Elaeagnus is ''Pungens variegata'' with the narrow silver edge. Maculata, if I remember correctly is the gold variegation similar to Limelight (ebbingei)

          Yes, I think that's the one! Hurrah! Yes, I kept finding the Maculata ones which is why I thought it should be more yellow. Thanks @Tetters !
