The Dwarf Wax Myrtle, scientifically known as Myrica Cerifera ‘pumila’, is a compact evergreen shrub with glossy, aromatic foliage. It typically grows to a height of 2 to 4 feet, making it an excellent choice for smaller gardens, borders, or as a low hedge.


Typical Uses

This versatile shrub is prized for its ornamental value. Its dense, dark green foliage provides year-round interest, and in late summer to fall, it produces small, waxy berries that attract birds. The Dwarf Wax Myrtle is commonly used in landscaping for its ability to form a low hedge, as a foundation planting, or as an accent shrub.

Watering: Keep the soil consistently moist, especially during the plant’s establishment period. Once established, it is moderately drought-tolerant.

Pruning: Prune as needed in late winter or early spring to maintain the desired shape and size. Remove dead or damaged branches regularly.

Fertilizing: Apply a balanced, slow-release fertilizer in spring to promote healthy growth.
