California Wax Myrtle


These have never bloomed at the nursery before. Now they have! The catkins are beautiful! (If a bit understated). Eventually we’ll get dark purple berries too.

Myrica californica is native to the West Coast and the leaves are extremely fragrant when crushed, also known as bayberry – used for various medicinal preparations.

Here’s a picture of the fruit from the Mendocino Coast.
