Bayberry

Bayberry

Myrica pensylvanica 5-10' x same.

A common sight along Maine’s rocky shores. Glossy leaves are highly aromatic, although not to be confused with the Mediterranean bay leaf in your spice collection.

Small greyish-blue waxy fragrant berries were historically used for making candles. Non-showy flowers appear in late spring followed by fruit production along the stems of female plants during summer into late fall. Plants feed numerous wildlife species and are especially craved by swallows.

Rounded deciduous semi-evergreen very salt-tolerant shrub thrives in full sun to partial shade, and in sandy poor soils to heavy clay soils. Excellent in masses or hedges, tends to sucker. Fixes nitrogen. Tends toward being dioecious: male and female plants required for good fruit development. We’re offering unsexed plants; plant several if you desire fruit. Native to eastern U.S. Z2. (1-3' bare-root plants)
