Plant Highlights

Paradise Manzanita is a showy, spreading evergreen shrub and can be used as a border or as groundcover. The bark is a dark red, while the flowers vary from white to pink depending on the climate and soil. If the manzanita is pruned once a year the bright red new growth will cover the shrub and the growth will turn almost purple in the fall. One of the most spectacular things about this manzanita is the fact that is flowers for almost 3 months.

Horticultural Selection A. pajaroensis: origin = cuttings from W. Roderick (197?); introduced by Suncrest Nurseries 1982.
