Myrica pensylvanica (Bayberry)
Does anyone know how long these take to become established? I planted two over a year ago in a spot that should be fine for them according to my reading. Neither one seems to have grown at all, so I am hoping that they are busy growing lots and lots of strong roots. They are about 18 inches to two feet tall which is about what they were when I planted them and they haven't gotten any bushier. They get partial sun morning and afternoon and are in a spot that does not tend to dry out. I read they are fine in wet spots which makes this placement perfect. Maybe I just don't understand what "moderate growth" means. :)
Also, I will admit that I am a little bored and searching for something to amuse me! I do not find these little shrubs amusing.
