This small-leaved selection of Pacific Wax Myrtle will take shearing and can be kept as low as 3 feet. This cultivar was selected for its lower (6 -10 feet unpruned) height and its small glossy evergreen leaves. Drought and sun tolerant on the coast, it appreciates occasional water and a bit of afternoon shade inland. A light pruning every so often will keep it dense.
