Bayberry is Ideal for Fragrant Gardens
Bayberry, also known as Southern Wax Myrtle, is often used as a mass planting item. Bayberry also creates attractive hedges, thickets, and privacy borders, but it may also be successfully integrated as a focal point planting.
Bayberry is extremely tolerant of sandy soil and even high salt content. Bayberry has long been used as a candle-making ingredient as the drupes carry a coating appropriate for making wax.
Deer resistant, Bayberry leaves offer a pleasant fragrance throughout the spring and summer, and this fragrance makes them useful, too, as natural insect repellant. To ensure fruit set, gardeners should plant at least one male Bayberry among a host of females.
Including Bayberry in your garden scheme ensures safe harbor for a variety of desirable creatures from birds to butterflies. Order yours today to create attractive wildlife habitats.
