Bayberry - 2 Gal.


Myrica pensylvanica

There may not be a plant, native or otherwise, that has as many uses and 'talents' as Northern Bayberry. It has a long history in the eastern U.S. due to its scent and the use of its essential oil in soaps, candles, and other household products. It also has a long, storied landscape history and is a prime wildlife support plant. Northern Bayberry forms a wide, spreading presence in the landscape with deep green foliage densely held and very aromatic when crushed. It's a very tolerant plant, surviving sun or partial shade, moist or dry soils, great conditions or seaside spray with ease, all while providing loads of cover for birds and supply of gray, waxy berries in the fall and winter that birds love. This plant is big, so give it ample space in the landscape… it may be a great plant for that rough area you have where you can let it grow, enjoy its lushness and watch the birds flock to your yard!
