Note: The Southern Waxmrytle is a large native shrub found growing in thickets, woodlands, near swamplands and open fields. It thrives in full sunlight or partial shade, but is tolerant of a wide range of growing conditions. In the landscape it has been used as a small evergreen tree, but continual suckering requires frequent pruning and it may be considered a maintenance issue. The Southern Waxmyrtle is probably more suited in a shrubby form as a hedge or screen.
