Shade Grade: TBD


California Wax Myrtle

Myrica californica / Morella californica

Super hardy and able to stand dry shade (according to GPP), I settled on these Pacific Wax Myrtles as a screen for underneath our newly limbed up chamaecyparis at the property line between us and the new house. Purported to grow quickly and quite large, I’m hoping to underplant these with smaller shrubs as I suspect they’ll get a little leggy without full sun.
