Versatile Shrub or Ornamental Tree

Why Wax Myrtle Trees?

If a partition or screen is your objective, then the Wax Myrtle performs flawlessly. Its dense foliage and quick-growing nature lends itself to being an excellent choice for shrubs. Plant them in a row to define your property line, or to accent your front patio.

And the Wax Myrtle's foliage and berries are pleasingly fragrant, making it a great addition to your outdoor living space. The fruit matures in the fall and remains throughout winter, attracting a multitude of birds. Plus, Myrtle is 'green' in more ways than one, as it returns nitrogen to the soil and organically repels insects.

Why Fast-Growing-Trees.com is Better

For starters, the easy-to-grow Wax Myrtle is deer resistant, heat and drought tolerant. Known for its adaptable nature, the Wax Myrtle will put up with moist or dry soil and even grows well in infertile soils. These plants are so trouble-free they practically take care of themselves.

But the best part is its strong history. You get rich foliage, tiny yellow-green flowers that are daintily aromatic in the spring and carefree benefits because we've nurtured our Wax Myrtles for a head start. When your Wax Myrtle arrives to your door, it's ready to grow effortlessly.

Our Wax Myrtles are grown with expert, loving care and are healthy and ready for quick shipment. Get your own Wax Myrtle today!

So far so good!

I would give this 5 stars if the shipping wasn't a bit of a headache - though I do think it was mostly FedEx's fault. The tracking info said all 25 plants would come Friday, so we ran to Home Depot to rent an auger for 24 hours only to find out the shipping ended up coming in waves over the next 3 days. The last shipment's final estimated delivery time was between 10-2 on Sunday but it ended up being plopped on our porch at almost 9pm on Sunday night. So we had 12 large, heavy boxes to haul into the garage for the night. Aside from the shipping "adventure", the plants arrived well-packaged and healthy! They're all in the ground now - fingers crossed they all make it!

Wax myrtle

Fast growing trees was great! There was a delay with the shipping that wasn't caused by fast growing trees that caused the trees to be dead by the time they arrived. We notified Fast growing trees and they sent us new trees immediately. Would highly Recommend them.

Great customer service

I bought 3 gallon and 5 gallon wax myrtles, it took an extra four weeks for the 5 gallons to be delivered. Although I was initially unsatisfied with the 5 gallon product, customer service reached out and refunded the difference between the 3 gallon and 5 gallon plants because they were the same size as a 3 gallon plant. All of the wax Myrtle’s have grown like crazy so far this summer, and I could not be happier now with this product. Honestly the best customer service Experience I have ever had. I have since had a family member order the same product (three gallon wax myrtle) and theirs are growing like crazy too.

High Quality Product from Fast Growing Trees - As Always!

I order two Wax Myrtle Trees. Each one was trimmed correctly in that the bush/tree is prepared to grow straight up as opposed to the sides and all over the place. Very important! Of course, the leaves are deep green and ready to go. I can't wait to see them grow right before my eyes.
