Easily grown in average, dry to medium, well-drained soils in full sun to part shade. Best in slightly acidic, moist soil. Does well on dry, sandy, infertile soils once established. Tolerant of wet soil and salt spray. Use Myrica Silver SpriteTM in low shrub borders, naturalized plantings, and herb gardens.

If a pollinator such as Myrica 'Morton Male' is planted nearby, waxy blue-gray fruit will develop and persist into winter. Plant within 10' of each other for good fruit production, one male plant can pollinate multiple female plants. The fruits are used to make bayberry candles and are also attractive to birds.

The large bold flowerheads can also be enjoyed indoors in cut arrangements. Bold attractive foliage frequently enhances the floral display and extends seasonal ornamental interest.

    For over 40 years Father John L. Fiala (1924-1990) worked as a scholar and plant breeder to enrich the horticultural world. His two great interests were Lilacs and Flowering Crabapples. Working in Ohio, Father Fiala developed Lilac hybrids that set new standards with their improved disease resistant foliage, superb floral features, and outstanding form. His Flowering Crabapple introductions are among the finest choices for the garden, with outstanding flowers and fruit, excellent disease resistance, and pleasing growth habits.

    All of Father Fiala's remarkable horticultural achievements were accomplished in addition to his professional life as a Parish Priest, High School Principal, and College Professor.

    Container Planting

    Planting, Growing, and Caring for Plants in Containers

    Choose a plant that is adaptable to a container. Generally most plants with a moderate to small root system will grow in a pot, some larger growing specimens, such as shade trees, large shrubs, and deep-rooted large perennials are best planted in the ground.

    Select a container that corresponds to the size and quantity of plants you have chosen. Use a quality potting mix in a pot with holes to ensure good drainage. Fertilize and water carefully as needed, since containers create a smaller root zone for plants.

    In areas with cold winters, consider a plant's hardiness. Some plants will need to be moved to an enclosed area for winter, such as a garage or cold frame, and given minimal water. Some plants will survive in a sturdy planter in a sheltered location, especially if they are rated for a zone or two hardier than the zone where they are being grown. For example, if you are in a zone 5, it is suggested to select plants hardy to zone 4 or colder.

    Another option is to enjoy your plants for a season in a container and then approximately 6 weeks before the ground freezes remove them from the pots, plant them in the garden and mulch around their root zones. Look for additional information specifically for your hardiness zone from your nearest arboretum, public gardens, or university extension services.

    >Container Planting Varieties

    Good for Cut Flowers

    Enjoy fresh cut blooms right from the garden! Experiment and have fun: store-bought blooms need to withstand storage and shipping, but home gardeners can use almost any flower for bouquets.

    For the longest lasting cut flowers cut the flowers in the coolest part of the day, place them in water promptly, remove any foliage below the waterline, and keep the water clean by changing it daily or every other day.

    >Cut Flower Varieties

    Drought Tolerant

    Save time and water with drought tolerant choices. Drought tolerant plants are especially appreciated growing along the outer edges of a garden, beyond the easy reach of a hose. Drought tolerant plants sometimes do need watering when newly planted or during periods of extreme drought, but overall, they need less watering than typical plants.

    >Drought Tolerant Varieties

    Fall Color

    Plan ahead for great fall color! Leaves that turn bright colors, colorful fruit, late blooming plants, and interesting seedheads all add interest to the garden. We have many great plants to ensure a strong finish to the season!
