Wax Myrtle in zone 6 (non dwarf) in shade?
The title says it all. I want an evergreen shrub, sorta tall 6-8 feet tall, for shade and sometimes soggy soil. I love Rhodedendron Maximum, but they want well drained soil, unless I make a large mound for them to grow up on, they won't make it. The mound idea will look stupid, or unnatural, unless I made the mound long, like a stream bank and I can't afford to go hog wild with this yard, so a tall Wax Myrtle is hopefully okay. It will be dappled shade eventually. It will be moist to wet according to the rainfall amount. Maybe dry in drought years. I have seen some listed zone 4-10, but they may be Dwarf. The good ones are zone 7-10. Anyone have any in zone 6 or less that are evergreen and fairly tall.
