Pacific Wax Myrtle
Good hedge or screen. Birds are attracted to berries.
This lustrous, dense, tree-like shrub is one of the best native plants for gardens. Amenable to pruning and training, it’s an excellent candidate for hedging or screening. Wax myrtle requires shade and irrigation in dry, inland sites but in maturity becomes drought tolerant in cool coastal regions.
