30 seeds $4.25
Native to eastern North America, growing in coastal areas and to my mind, the shrub I most associate with Nova Scotia. This semi-evergreen species (mostly deciduous in the north) has an upright habit and can form colonies in the wild. The deep green, leathery foliage is lustrous and beautifully aromatic, when crushed. Insignificant flowers in spring are followed by ornamental, waxy gray-green fruits, ripening to a chalky blue, used to make bayberry candles. Seed wild collected in Ontario.
Cold treatment required.
