Myrica pensylvanica
Northern Bayberry

The leaves of Northern Bayberry are slowly deciduous in its northern range (to zone 3), but semi-evergreen in its southern range (to zone 6). However, for best display of the ornamental fruits, complete abscission of foliage is desired by early Winter, so placing the shrub in a sunny, wind-exposed site is desirable to help achieve this effect.
