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.
