Dark green foliage, aromatic when crushed, and persisting well into autumn; clusters of gray, waxy berries on female plants; fruits persist into winter and are also aromatic. Since male and female flowers are on separate plants, both are needed to produce the waxy berries (berries will be produced on female plant only). These berries are used to make bayberry candles. Our plants are unsexed, so get a couple to try to get berries. Soil Type: Sandy, loamy Soil Conditions: Wet Mesic - Dry Mesic Flower Color: Catkins: Male & Female plants separate; Not showy Height: 6-10' Light: Full to part sun Credits: Info courtesy of U of IL Extension; Photo courtesy of Brad Slaughter for https://mnfi.anr.msu.edu/species/description/19792/Myrica-pensylvanica
