description: A tough and handsome evergreen shrub, Dwarf Wax-myrtle is commonly seen in the wild in coastal forests and swamps. This native species is related to Bayberry, and you may notice that its pleasantly aromatic foliage smells like bayberry candles. Birds are particularly fond of its berries and use it as a groundcover. Over time, Dwarf Wax-myrtle will spread by stolons creating a nice massing in your landscape. Its attractive pale grey bark provides year-round interest.
