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.

This natty tightset ground cover hosts dainty urn-shaped white flowers amid small lustrous gray-green leaves that burst forth with cozy bronze hues. A low, fast spreading evergreen gem introduced by Saratoga Horticultural Foundation in 1972, ‘Carmel Sur’ takes on heat, heavy clay soil, dry conditions and regular summer irrigation, better than most Manzanitas. It smothers weeds, stabilizes slopes and serves as a verdant lawn replacement.

Size: 12" high x 4' 0"–6' 0" wide; hardy to zone 8.
