Monterey Manzanita

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.

Arctostaphylos hookeri ‘Wayside’ full sun  partial shade

Full of vigor and bright, fine textured greenery, this coastal California native spreads to form a low, handsome mound. Rubescent brown branches gracefully sweep upwards and sometimes grow in twisted shapes, forming a framework for the upfacing, pointed leaves, reddened stems and dainty white flowers.

Always appreciative of well drained sites, and when grown inland, summertime watering with a little shade, ‘Wayside’ is a superb candidate for banks, rock gardens or native plantings accompanying Erigeron ‘Ron’s Pink’ and Deschampsia ‘Goldgehänge’.

Blooms February–April.

Size: 2'–3' high x 6'–8' wide; hardy to zone 8.

Dainty blooms and unfurling leaves forge an early spring treasure trove of color and texture.

In the last ten days, we’ve experienced all kinds of weather at Digging Dog, including frosty mornings, torrential downpours, deafening hail, glorious sunny 70 º afternoons and even sleet! Thankfully spring is almost here and signs of its arrival grow more evident every day. Brimming with possibility, youthful growth and pristine delicacy, the early spring garden is a fresh treasure trove of color and texture. The plants featured in this newsletter caught my eye while walking through the nursery and along the surrounding borders. Hopefully, a handful of them will spark your interest as well! All of us here at the nursery wish you a very happy spring and countless happy afternoons digging in a garden!
