Bayberry is Ideal for Fragrant Gardens

Northern 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. 

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.
