Petite Margarita is a very small manzanita that grows on one of the hills south of Lompoc. Similar to Arctostaphylos myrtifolia with its delicate leaves and sprawling habit. Grows to maybe two feet tall and three or so feet wide.

I would use this manzanita in a small east facing bed or along a cool retaining wall where it can soften the top as it drapes over, looking VERY different. A very clean and neat plant with reds and greens.

Mixing this manzanita into a ground cover of Sunset and Harmony manzanita would be dramatic planting.

If you have one of those detached condos with the mini-yard mix  3 Petite Margarita(in the middle) with a few flat  Ceanothus gloriosus porrectus (around the manzanitas) and run along the walk ways Erigeron 'Wayne Roderick', Erigeron 'Cape Sebastian', Zauschneria 'Mattole River'' or 'Bert's Bluff', and Penstemon 'Margarita BOP' every foot or so to make a native garden with a mix of genera to help a little of everyone. The hummingbirds will use the Zauschneria, Penstemon and manzanita, native bees and butterflies  the Erigeron and Penstemon.
