Hi all I am new to the Mobile Alabama area and am looking to find a source of wax myrtles. I am trying to create a screen between myself and an unsightly barn next door. I would like to buy trees that are in 5 to 7 gallon pots

May I suggest that you purchase 3 gallon plants, which should be available in any garden center or nursery in your location? Wax myrtles grow sooooo quickly that you won't be sorry you did it. It might be more difficult to find the larger sizes.

Good choice for screening. Be sure you have plenty of room or plan on pruning once or twice a year.They really bush out and take up alot of space.

I have used Dodd's Native Nursery before. Good folks and very knowledgeble about this area.

Tell them what you want to do and the type of soil you have.

They will even deliver for not much money.
