Don’s Dwarf Wax Myrtle is a dense rounded evergreen shrub  with aromatic glossy deep olive green foliage.  The flowers are inconspicuous but fragrant and the female flowers give way to clusters of blue-grey berries that persist into winter.  Best in full sun and moist soils.  Can be considered a fire hazard in some areas, as the aromatic compounds of the foliage and stems are flammable.  Leaf spot resistant.
