Native Shrubs



 

Myrica californica  Pacific Wax Myrtle   
A handsome and fast-growing evergreen to 18 feet or more, adaptable to sun or shade, with bursts of new growth in lustrous light green set off against mature foliage of darker hue and waxier texture. Excellent when sheared as a hedge (it responds well to cutting) or pruned into a specimen tree by thinning the bushy branches to reveal their forking architecture. A proud community member of redwood forests and mixed oak woodlands in the Bay Area. The roots fix nitrogen, improving soils, the leaves can be used to season stews like bay laurel and the waxy berries are a delicacy for northern flickers, chestnut-backed chickadees, yellow-rumped warblers, tree swallows, towhees, Cedar Waxwings and Robins.
