The perfect privacy screen for a wooded lot! The Wax Myrtle is actually an old fashioned shrub that was used by early settlers. They boiled the leaves and fruits to extract wax, which they used to make bayberry candles. In the landscape we use the Wax Myrtle in many situations where we have full sun or partial shade. It prefers a fertile, moist, well-drained soil but will tolerate a wide range of soil conditions. Wax myrtle makes an excellent background plant, hedge and/or evergreen screen.
