Bayberry
Bayberry Myrica pensylvanica 5-10' x same.

A common sight on Maine’s coastal islands. Rubbing the glossy deep green leaves between your fingers produces one of the most delicious smells in the world. Leaf and root teas are medicinal.

Small greyish-blue waxy berries along the stems of female plants are highly aromatic, historically used for making candles. Non-showy flowers appear in late spring followed by fruit production 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)
