Product Description

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 Way 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.

Beautiful

I order all the time and have never been disappointed! Can’t wait to see my wax myrtle grow! The only sad part was during transport half the plant lost its branches. Never had that happen before but I have hopes it will grow back .

They all caught within a week of being planted. I can't wait for them to grow so I can prune little by little to get them into a bush pattern. They are going to be beautiful!!!

Wax Myrtle Trees

Quick delivery and superior packaging! The wax myrtles I ordered arrived lush and beautiful. Ordered one week, delivered and planted early the next week. They’ve been in the ground for 2 weeks—-no shock at all, only beautiful green growth. I cannot wait until they fill in their spaces. Gorgeous shrubs/trees!


Planting & Care

1. Planting: Wax Myrtles prefer well draining, slightly acidic soils, but will adapt to just about any soil type. If you’re located near a beach, this makes for a great tree as it is tolerant to sea spray. Select a location where where it will receive full to partial sunlight (4 to 8 hours of sunlight per day) and where the roots will not be disturbed.

When you're ready to plant, dig a hole twice as wide and just as deep as the root system. Tamp the soil down as you back fill the hole to cut back on any air pockets from forming. After planting, be sure to give your Wax Myrtle tree a deep watering for about 5 minutes. Mulching around the tree will help insulate the roots and keep your plant warm in the colder winter months as well.

2. Watering: Wax Myrtles do best when watered around the drip line every 10 to 14 days. As a rule of thumb, if the soil is moist 2 to 3 inches down, avoid watering your tree until it’s dry.

3. Fertilizing: Wax Myrtles generally do not require very much fertilizing. If you do fertilize, avoid anything with an excessive amount of nitrogen.

4. Pruning: When growing your Wax Myrtle as a hedge, minimal pruning is required to maintain a desired shape. Be sure to do any pruning in early spring before new growth starts. When the shrub is young, it can be trained into a tree form by choosing the largest and strongest stem (or stems if you’d prefer a multi-trunk tree) and pruning all other stems to ground level.
