glossy-leaf manzanita

A remarkably compact selection of this shiny-leaved manzanita discovered by Ken Taylor at Haven’s Neck on the southern Mendocino coast. Little bell-like flowers of pink-tinged white emerge in late winter set against small, round leaves growing regularly along the stems. The slightly shaggy bark is a reddish-brown color and contrasts nicely with the dark green foliage. Over a few years,this plant reaches a height of about 1 foot and a width of about 3 feet. Unlike most manzanitas, this species needs moderate water and protection from the hot afternoon sun in inland locales. Makes a great container plant.
