Myrica pensylvanica

The glossy, dark green leaves of summer unfold into soft grayish berries in fall.

Commonly collected to harvest their waxy covering for classic bayberry candles, the smell is intense and reminiscent of classic Christmas.

This shrub help fix nitrogen in the soil and is excellent for slope stabilization. If you’re on a hill or need ground cover, this is the perfect partner for your trees! It will feed your trees, naturally, instead of needing to be fertilized. Shrub can handle being cut back heavily as well as some traffic.

A native in the northeastern U.S. that can grow in the most depleted or poor soils, increases the fertility of the soil over time.

Plant multiples for pollination, plants are male or female and only females will bear fruit.
