Wax Myrtle as a foundation plant?
Trying to help my neighbor out.
Need a small evergreen tree.
- CANNOT be a Holly.
- CANNOT be Florida Anise.
- CANNOT be a conifer.
- Must be evergreen.
- Needs to be more upright than bushy/shrubby.
- Prefer something native.
- Cannot grow to more than 15' diameter, ~20' tall.
I mentioned wax myrtle to them, but I can't find a single one that actually has an upright, taller, skinnier look to it. They all seem to be shrubbery, and that's just not going to cut it.
Open to suggestions that fit within the confines of above. This will be replacing a holly tree I dug out for them almost 18 months ago. They're REALLY wanting something else to go there. I wanted to put a Pineapple Guava in the spot, but ... meh.
