Little Sur manzanita

Choice, low growing manzanita introduced by the Tilden Botanic Garden.  Dense, mounding or cascading habit growing to around a foot tall by 6 ft. wide with small dark green leaves and bronzy new growth.  Not as fast growing as 'Carmel Sur'. Clusters of tiny pink to white urn-shaped flowers in winter attract hummingbirds and are followed by handsome cinnamon colored little apple-shaped fruits. Excellent cascading over walls, rocks, or containers in sun to light shade.  This manzanita has proven adaptable and fairly garden tolerant putting up with heavy soils and more summer water than many.  Full sun along the coast with light shade in hot inland sites.  Drought tolerant once established but appreciates occasional summer water.
