Wax Myrtle – Aromatic Beauty for Your Garden

About the Bloom

The Wax Myrtle Evergreen Shrub is known for its small, waxy berries that are a favorite of birds. While it doesn’t produce showy blooms, its dense foliage and fragrant leaves more than make up for it. The aromatic scent of the leaves adds a refreshing touch to your garden, making it a delightful addition to any landscape.

What to Know About the Plant

The Wax Myrtle is an evergreen shrub with dark green, glossy leaves that provide year-round interest. It can grow up to 10-15 feet tall and has a dense, bushy habit that makes it an excellent choice for hedges or privacy screens. Its compact size and low maintenance requirements make it a versatile plant that thrives in a variety of conditions.

Enhancing your Fruitscape

Pair the Wax Myrtle Evergreen Shrub with fruit trees like Citrus or Fig for a Mediterranean-inspired garden design. The lush foliage of the Wax Myrtle contrasts beautifully with the fruit trees, creating a visual feast for the eyes. Mix in herbs like Rosemary and Thyme for a fragrant touch, or add berry plants such as Blueberries or Raspberries for a pop of color. Tropical plants like Banana or Pineapple can also complement the Wax Myrtle, adding a tropical flair to your landscape.

Growing Guide

Currently, we only have growing guides for our edible plants.   We are working on them for our ornamental & landscaping plants, and will add them in the near future.  Contact us if you have questions on how to plant and nurture your Shrubs and Hedges, and we will be glad to have one of our gardeners assist you.

Ornamental & Landscaping Plants at Just Fruits & Exotics

Although Just Fruits and Exotics has been providing ornamental and landscaping plants to customers at our nursery since we added “Exotics” to our name in the 1990’s, we never had them available to our customers online.

However, September of 2018, with the launch of our updated Just Fruits and Exotics website, we added many of our ornamental and landscaping plants to our online store for our customers nationwide.   We encourage you to “Fruitscape” your yards, mixing edibles and ornamentals to make your own edible garden.

Shipping Information

Before Your Plants Arrive: You can find many guides on unpacking, planting, & care, on our growing guides page.

The Journey From Our Nursery to Your Door:  We NEVER ship our plants bare root. Your plant will travel in the very container in which it was nurtured. We thoroughly prune and water them before packing, and make sure they’re well wrapped to retain moisture during transit. It’s as though you’ve personally collected them from our nursery!

Choose Your Ship Date: We understand you’ll want to be available when your plant arrives. Our checkout process features a handy calendar that allows you to choose the Monday on which you want your plant to ship. Depending on your location, you’ll likely receive your plant by Wednesday, Thursday, or Friday of that week. Once shipped, UPS will generate a tracking number and send it to the email you provided. You can then follow your plant’s journey and ensure someone is available to unpack it on arrival day.
