Morella pennsylvatica

Bayberry is an indigenous plant along the northern part of the eastern seaboard in the U.S.; its range also extends into Canada. They need full sun but don’t care about the soil they are in, as long as it well-drained. In the winter, they are known for their gray berries.  While not a preferred food source for most birds, they do sere as an emergency food source.   They do however provide wild birds some cover in winter.
