Salt, Disease and Drought Tolerance for Easy Evergreen
Why Don’s Dwarf Wax Myrtles?
Resistant to salt damage, disease and drought, Don’s Dwarf Wax Myrtle is one of the strongest evergreen shrubs available. And despite being a dwarf grower, it boasts a full, dense habit that’s ideal for hedging or simply growing as a focal specimen plant.
That means it’s both versatile and adaptable. So, whether you plant it as a shrub along borders or small tree in your homescape, it shines with its smaller olive-green leaves and eye-catching volume – no specific soil required since it acclimates so well to any type. Another benefit is the pleasant fragrance that emerges from its leaves when they’re crushed.

Planting & Care
2. Watering: Water regularly during the first growing season, about once per week or when the surrounding soil is dry. Check for soil dryness about 2 to 3 inches down in the surrounding soil – if the soil is dry, it’s time to water your Wax Myrtle.
3. Fertilizing: Feed your Wax Myrtle with a general-purpose fertilizer in early spring, before new growth begins.
4. Pruning: You can prune or shear your Don’s Dwarf Wax Myrtle for a neater, tidier appearance, or for your desired shape.
