Dwarf Wax Myrtle
Myrica cerifera var. pumila -- NATIVE TO TEXAS
Finding an evergreen shrub in the Hill Country that the deer don’t eat can be a huge challenge. And yet another challenge can be finding the right size shrub for certain areas of your landscaping – one that doesn’t grow too big or require a lot of maintenance. The Dwarf Wax Myrtle is a solution to all of these challenges.
This shrub is suitable to place in front of windows since it won’t block your view and also stays nice and full year-round. It grows to approximately 4’ tall but can be easily maintained at 3’, making it an ideal pruned hedge. In addition, it can grow in the sun or shade and is drought-tolerant once established.
We have several fruit tree varieties available now at the nursery. These trees are recommended by the AgriLife Extension office for Kerr County because they are well-adapted to our soil and climate.
- 15G Blenheim Apricots
- 30G Asian Pear
- 15G Loring Peach
- 15G Methley Plums
And another fruit tree that is a native to our area is our 15G and 30G Mexican Plums.
