Wax Myrtle…..

After TheTree went down,I planted the Sweet Gum tree.
Close to it,I planted a Wax Myrtle shrub Myrica cerifera.

Just because I wanted to introduce more Florida native shrubbery to the garden.

I don’t know if this is normal,or the warm winters we’ve had the past few years,but it seems to be an early bloomer.

which I was not,but that’s for a whole other post….
It’s growing next to a Jamaica Caper Capparis cynophallophora

a Simpson’s Stopper Myrcianthes,and a Beauty Berry Callicarpa.

All growing by the water’s edge.
I’m aiming for a natural type hedge,by the water,which will provide cover and food for the birds,butterflies and bees.
