Myrica pensylvanicum-Waxberry


SKU: mype Category:


Early colonists to New England were said to have removed the waxy coating from the berries to make into candles. (I have always wanted to try this myself, wouldn’t that be cool, wax berry candles.) Typically found above the high tide line where they can make a living despite the insults the ocean throws at them. Tolerant of salt, quick draining sandy soils, low soil fertility, and low moisture levels. An exceptional selection when you have spots that won’t grow much else. This is a perfect substitute for rugosa rose, which is pretty, but not native, and arguably invasive. Birds love the berries in the fall. Unsexed plants.

$35, 2 gallon pot size, 12in to 15in height
