Advice on Morella cerifera (Wax Myrtle)

I am in need of a super-fast growing privacy wall that can get up to 15' or so.

I am very enamored of the Wax Myrtle after a bunch of on-line research, for its growth, its scent, and its nearly perfect size.

Unfortunately, here in Los Angeles it is totally unknown to the local growers! I've tried 10 nurseries, and they treat me like I'm trying to order something native to Zimbabwe...

Does anyone have ANY recommendations on Southern California growers that have Wax Myrtles, or perhaps a reputable online supplier they've successfully used to obtain them? I'd also love to hear any stories recarding this species in the southern California region.

Thank you thank you! I'm pretty stumped right now...

Gegaron, I know that feeling of wanting a very specific plant. I looked at Las Pilitas,, they have quite a few listed in production, you might contact them and see if there are any available to ship yet.

I could have sworn I saw some gallon size containers at the Cambria Nursery when I was looking at their natives today, you might give them a call and see if they'll ship.

Good luck!
