Arctostaphylos Greensphere

So slow manzanita.

We currently do not grow this plant.

Greensphere Manzanita is an evergreen shrub, incredibly slow to 5', dark green foliage, rounded form. A very garden tolerant, a very formal looking shrub. Looks like it has been sheared into a tight ball. It has red shinning bark. I would not expect very many of these in 15 gallons in the trade as it would take 10 years. Fairly easy to grow, just very slow. Ours made it through in gallons in the dec. '90 freeze. The only others to do so were, A. parryana and A. uva-ursi. It should be hardy to at least -10, maybe -20. We finally lost all the mother plants to drought. It seems they need about once per week water here and they do not like living in a toaster with four inches of rain for the year. That one rainy week was not enough. Click here for more about California Manzanitas(Arctostaphylos).
