Margarita Pearl manzanita is a seedling of Arctostaphylos glauca that has very large flowers and berries. We're not sure if it is all Big Berry manzanita(glauca) or a hybrid between glauca and wellsii, it looks like a super glauca. It was a seedling that came up in our demonstration garden at Las Pilitas Nursery, Santa Margarita. We decided it was worth a name. Flowers are large and pure white, customers stop and ask what is this plant when in flower. The foliage is a bright grey on new growth and dull grey on old growth. Flowers appear in December or January and do not seem to care about the snow or single digit weather. The fruit should be called the biggest berry manzanita.
