Wax Myrtle is an evergreen tree that may reach a height of 20 to 25 feet but is typically considerably smaller. The light olive green leaves alternate with a serrated edge and yellow resin spots on both surfaces. They have a spicy fragrant flavour when crushed. The bark is thin, smooth, gray-brown in colour and practically white in appearance. Small male and female slender, cylindrical blooms develop in the spring. The tiny tree has a bluish-white drupe that develops in bunches on short stalks and lasts all winter.
