|I purchased a Bayberry approx 2 years ago and have never seen berries. I'm told by local nurseries that I need a male and a female plant in order for the female to produce berries. The problem is, no one can tell me how to tell the difference between male and female plants. Is there a way to tell?
Thanks in advance,
|If you purchased a Monrovia bayberry (NORTHERN BAYBERRY Myrica pennsylvanica), you have a male plant with inconspicuous spring flowers. In order to get berries, you'll need to add a female plant to your landscape. Females are tagged as female, berry producing plants. Their flowers are more conspicuous than those of the male. Best wishes with your landscape!|
