Swamp Bayberry

Swamp Bayberry is found in acid lowgrounds in the Southeastern U.S. and is similar to M. pensylvanica but is evergreen and the fruits are smaller and almost black. The aromatic leaves are larger and broader than Myrica cerifera, the common Waxmyrtle. It makes a good evergreen ornamental shrub for sunny or semi-shady sites with sandy acid soil and adequate moisture.   Most botanists now consider Morella to be the proper name for the genus we are still calling Myrica.
