Shag Bark Manzanita, Arctostaphylos
is an evergreen shrub a foot and a half or so tall and 3 feet
wide. It does best in coastal sand and sun.
Shag Bark Manzanita is a great choice for Nipomo, Santa Maria and Lompoc sand, where it is locally native. Use as a dark green ground cover. I've seen it very formal looking in its element. It has thrived where other plants have failed. Arctosphylos rudis is a rare plant, only found along the central coast. The average rainfall is about 10" where it grows, fog drip raises the total to maybe 25 ". That is 10 " of rain in sandy soil so this is one tough plant. Mojave gets around 5"...just for comparison. Native on old sand dunes, along the central coast, in the same area as Arctostaphylos purissima and has the same surprising hardiness. It has survived here where Arctostaphylos 'Dr Hurd' froze out.
Arctostaphylos rudis tolerates salt and sand.
Arctostaphylos rudis is great for a bird garden.
Arctostaphylos rudis's foliage color is reddish-green and type is evergreen.
Arctostaphylos rudis's flower color is white.
Arctostaphylos rudis's fruit is edible.
