Myrica Pennsylvanica - Northern Bayberry
Available In Stock: 16
One of the most durable and resistant native shrubs to the Northeast, Myrica pennsylvanica can be found growing in thickets of dense forest or on the blustery dunes of the Atlantic Ocean. Northern Bayberry can handle salt and wind as well as any woody shrub that is hardy to the Northeast. It can be found growing indigenously from Newfoundland to North Carolina.
Bayberry's semi-evergreen, glossy leaves offer an extremely pleasant fragrance when crushed or handled. Female plants often produce attractive blue fruit on their stems. Mostly disease and pest free, Northern Bayberry is also a pollinator and food source for native flora and fauna. Myrica pennsylvanica is an excellent choice for tough to grow places.
