It prefers moist, well-drained soil and full sun to part shade and is adaptable to drier locations and is moderately drought tolerant one established. This plant is somewhat short-lived and suckers from the roots form thickets. Selective pruning of older trunks will increase life-span. Wax myrtle may also be pruned into hedges or small trees.
