Bearberry

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.

Lustrous, trim and fresh-looking, this prostrate evergreen ground cover keeps its composure all year long. Small, rich green leathery leaves glow with wintertime reddish purple tinges, while ushering in quantities of light pink urn-like flowers, followed by showy red apple-shaped berries that birds adore. A sturdy, northern California native reputed to possess astringent qualities, ‘Radiant’s lush close-to-the-ground mat brings verdant low maintenance accents to a native or Mediterranean setting.

Blooms March–April.

Size: 6"–8" high x 3' 0"–5' 0" wide; hardy to zone 5.
