It is not stoloniferous  ( running grasses create an impermeable thatch that inhibits these natives from reproducing, and invasive weeds have taken away most of the territory for these plants.) and is the only evergreen wax myrtle with wedge shaped leaves.  It is usually found in clay soils near streams, lakes, and other waterways, as well as in boggy grasslands and wet wooded areas.
