|Where can I find a female and male bayberry I have had one for years and it never gets blooms or berries. I can't tell the gender of this plant and can't find any knowledgable nurseries in the area.|
|In a database search for Myrica pensylvanica, I found it available at a variety of nurseries, including 2 in PA:
Appalachian Gardens Box 82 Waynesboro, PA USA 17268-0082 Telephone 888-327-5483 Fax 717-762-7532 [email protected].

In bayberries, male flowers are borne in scaly catkins, and females are in an ovoid cluster. (A catkin is a flower cluster that is usually pendulous, lacks petals, often stalkless, and surrounded by scalelike bracts. Frequently, they are unisexual.)
