Item added to cart!

Little Bull Wax Myrtle is a dense evergreen shrub  with larger and darker aromatic olive green foliage.  The flowers are inconspicuous but fragrant and the female flowers give way to clusters of blue-grey berries that persist into winter.  Best in full sun and moist soils.  Can be considered a fire hazard in some areas, as the aromatic compounds of the foliage and stems are flammable.
