Northern Bayberry is a dense-branching native semi-evergreen shrub with a rounded habit.  The narrow glossy grey-green foliage is aromatic when crushed and covers the inconspicuous flowers that if pollinated give way to tiny clusters of aromatic blue-grey berries that persist into winter.  Grows best in moist acidic soils.  Can be considered a fire hazard in some areas, as the aromatic compounds of the foliage and stems are flammable.
