    Southern Wax Myrtles

    Posted by Michael Moresi on Apr 28th 2020

    Arrived with quite a bit of leaf spot, but in 6-9 months these 3 plants are all thriving and growing rapidly in different light conditions and water availability. I love mail order natives and will be ordering from them again soon. Their prices are incredible!

    I had trouble finding this and was very happy to find it here, even though the only size was one gallon. They shipped exactly when I asked, it arrived the next day and looks very healthy.

    Amazing Customer Service!

    Posted by Terry Taylor on Oct 21st 2016

    The first set of 20 arrived looking great but I am pretty sure I might have killed them since I am very inexperienced. Amy responded quickly to all my questions and even sent replacements for the ones that we couldn't resuscitate! I would recommend them to anyone and I plan to use them again. I cannot wait until my privacy screen around my pool is complete. Thank you very much Amy.

    Shipment time as described. Plants came packed with dirt. I had some planted in full sun and shade. Bought plants in April, and now it is June, all the plants have new growth. Very happy with my order.

    Already Trippled in Size!

    Posted by Stephanie on Jan 10th 2016

    I had this shipped in the summer (not during a heat wave, but still, June) to Georgia and, even with summer planting and shipping during non-dormancy, it has done amazing! Already in just this first season, it has tripled it's size. Mail Order Natives does ship young trees that are just getting started, but it doesn't matter because EVERYTHING I have ordered from this company is so healthy and strong, they grow fast. This is a beautiful, ever green shrub that's still pretty even now in January, and it's growing well for me in a part sun clay area between me and my neighbors. I hope that in a few years it will be giving me lots of privacy. Great native alternative to Chinese Privet hedge up here!
