The Myrica pensylvanica Bobee™, or Bobee Northern Bayberry, is native to North America and found as far north as Newfoundland all the way south to North Carolina. Bobee Northern Bayberry is extremely versatile and hardy. Additionally, this is the perfect addition to a bird watcher’s garden! It attracts songbirds like chickadees, swallows, bluebirds, warblers and more. Bobee Northern Bayberry is a deciduous to semi-evergreen shrub, growing 6-8 feet tall. Its dense, rounded, dark green leaves have a fragrance of bay when crushed. 

Bobee Northern Bayberry could be used in the garden as an informal hedge or border, and makes a lovely background for flower beds. It looks especially nice when planted next to native roses. The flowers of Bayberry appear as inconspicuous, yellowish-green spikes that are found on separate male and female plants. The female flowers, if pollinated, produce a small grayish-white fruit in late summer. This gorgeous shrub would be ideal for woodland gardens or planting on slopes to help control erosion. It may also be used along driveways or roadways that require salting during the winter months since the shrub is salt tolerant. Bobee Northern Bayberry is a very versatile shrub!

Bobee Northern Bayberry Care

This plant prefers well-drained soil and a position in full sun to part shade. Keep the plant moist until the roots are established, usually after a few months. Bobee Northern Bayberry tolerates many soil types. Sandy, slightly acidic soil is best, but these plants are highly adaptable. Bayberry prefers to grow in full sun, but will also grow in part shade. 

Bobee Northern Bayberry is tolerant of environmental stresses such as heat, drought, poor soil and salt. In ideal conditions, this shrub suckers easily and will spread to form colonies. Prune away the suckers if you don’t want this plant to spread. 

Bobee Northern Bayberry Spacing

The Bobee Northern Bayberry works well planted in groups or mass plantings as a border, screen, or a hedge. Space this shrub 3 to 6 feet apart for best results.

Plant Addicts Warranty - 1 Year (Extra Purchase Required)

We encourage all plant lovers to purchase the Plant Addicts Warranty, whether you're a new gardener or an expert. There are many variables outside of anyone's control that can cause a plant to die. Hungry animals, drought, poor soil conditions, over watering, diseases & pests are all good examples of what can cause plants to die. The Plant Addicts Warranty is a 1 year warranty protecting you from all of the unknowns and will replace your plant if something were to happen to it.

The warranty is purchased on a per plant basis and must be purchased at the same time as the plant(s). We will cover 100% of the price of the plant, but the warranty does not cover shipping costs. SImply let us know if your plant has died within 1 year of receiving it and we will get you a new one shipped out as soon as possible (depending on the time of the year and availability). We may ask for photos for documentation purposes, but we try to make the process as easy as possible.

Guarantee and Warranty

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.

Summer

If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!

Winter

Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
