Plant Highlights

This tall, upright form manzanita is native to the mountains near Santa Barbara and grows in the chaparral. The flowers are a beautiful white with pale pink hints and appear early in the season while any new growth is a red color. This manzanita grows in decomposed granite or clay but doesn't like to grow in sand; and this plant doesn't need much supplemental water. A beautiful specimen to add to your landscape.
