Myrica cerifera is a small tree or large shrub with aromatic evergreen foliage.  It is native to the southern U.S.   'Luray' is a male clone selected in Hampton County, SC by Bob McCartney for its dense foliage and semi-dwarf form.  Waxmyrtle is usually found native in low, moist sites, but will tolerate drought.  Should be planted in acid soils in full sun to part shade. It is hardy from zone 7-9. and is relatively easy to transplant.  Most botanists now consider Morella to be the proper name for the genus we are still calling Myrica.
