Myrica pensylvanica Morton Male

Myrica pensylvanica 'Morton Male'

Bayberry - Northern

'Morton Male' Northern Bayberry was selected by Tim Boland while at the Morton Arboretum to serve as a good pollinator for their Silver Sprite™ female selection.  Myrica pensylvanica 'Morton Male' has excellent winter hardiness and is semi-evergreen, turning an attractive eggplant purple color in winter.  Both selections are excellent colonizers because of their suckering habit.  They both tolerate a very large range of soil types and soil moisture conditions.  Males should be planted with females in proportions of 1 to 5 for good fruit production.  (New name is Morella pensylvanica)
