Myrica pensylvanica Silver Sprite ('Morton')

Myrica pensylvanica Silver Sprite™

Bayberry - Northern

At last, a predictably female Bayberry! Silver Sprite™ ('Morton') has all the qualities of seedling plants but with heavy fruit set as long as there are males nearby. According to Dr. Dirr, you need 20% male plants in the area to guarantee a heavy fruit set. From the Morton Arboretum in Illinois.  Our preferred pollinator is Myrica p. 'Morton Male'.  (New name is Morella pensylvanica)
