Pacific Wax Myrtle for Eastern PA?
I have been scouring the Internet and this forum to find out what hedges would work in southeastern PA. I live outside of Philly . . . my area was re-zoned from 6 to 7 recently. Has anyone in this region tried Pacific Wax Myrtle? I only see it advertised on the west coast, where it is native.
I would like to grow a 10-15-ft hedge, lots of sun. I grew Southern Wax Myrtle in Virginia (zone 8) and just moved here and would love to have myrtle once again. So:
Will Pacific Wax Myrtle grow here? Do the deer go after it? (I am right next to Valley Forge National Park so LOTS of deer.) And . . . how far apart should I plant it? Thanks for your answers.
