An evergreen shrub or small tree, the wax myrtle is common and widespread in the southeast. The shiny, dark leaves are two to four inches long. The waxy fruit is good wildlife food. The wax can be used to make candles. A distinguishing characteristic of this tree is the aroma the leaf and fruit produce when crushed.
