Arctostaphylos uva-ursi ‘Vancouver Jade’
at Digging Dog

Arctostaphylos

Manzanita

Sinuous and smooth, earthy red-tinged branches, waxy urn-style blossoms and handsome rounded evergreen leaves—that’s Manzanita. An enormous clan indigenous to mostly the far western U.S., these easily cultivated durable woody plants call for excellent drainage, but can endure poor soil, thriving in rocky, sandy or acidic sites with minimal water. Light afternoon shade and occasional watering are appreciated in hotter locales.

A tidy low growing mainstay for the rockery, the oblong and narrow, vivid deep green leaves and red-tinged petioles clasp long slender stems to create a closely knit, polished ground cover. Aptly named ‘Vancouver Jade’ premiers pale pink flowers in early spring, broadcasts reddish bronze tones in winter and boasts a vigorous disease resistant habit.

Size: 6" high x 3' 0" & spreading; hardy to zone 5.
