Product Description

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.

Why is Better
For starters, our Don’s Dwarf Wax Myrtle is better because it’s been planted, monitored, nurtured, and finally, shipped with the utmost care. We’ve put in the extra work, so you get the absolute best results at your home. You’ll reap the rewards of our hard work in the most effortless and elegant way.

Utilize your Don’s Dwarf Wax Myrtle as low-maintenance hedging, mass shrubbery or a standalone star. Whatever you do, you’ll be pleased with its healthful growth. Landscape perfection is just a click away with our Don’s Dwarf Wax Myrtle!

Planting & Care

1. Planting: Crafted and chosen by experts for adaptability, your Don’s Dwarf Wax Myrtle is easy to maintain but needs an area with well-drained soil and 4 to 8 hours of sunlight per day. After you’ve selected a suitable location for your Don’s, dig a hole that’s two or three times the width of your shrub’s root ball. Then, place your plant before back filling the soil and watering to settle its roots.

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.

Good choice!

The ordering, delivery and quality of my Dwarf Wax Myrtle has gone smoothly and very satisfying. This was my first time ordering live plants online. I will order from FastGrowingTrees again. Thanks
