Wax Myrtle (Morella cerifera) is an erect, multi-trunked evergreen understory shrub. Found along the Coastal Plain from southern New Jersey to Florida and west along the Gulf Coastal Plain to eastern Texas and southeast Oklahoma, Wax Myrtle is an early successional species that is highly adaptable to a range of conditions: it can be found growing in fresh to slightly brackish banks and shores; pine flatwoods; marshes; wet prairies; hammocks; swamps; and dry xeric uplands. Wax Myrtle can easily form thickets that are over 20’ tall by 8’ wide.
