I hope everyone has enjoyed the recent rain and you are enjoying our cooler weather - especially the cool temps in the mornings. Read ahead to see what’s happening at the nursery!

Dwarf Wax Myrtle

dwarfwaxMyrica 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. 

Fruit Trees

And another fruit tree that is a native to our area is our 15G and 30G Mexican Plums.
