A knee high sub-shrub manzanita from the Big Sur area of the California coast. Flowers are clear white and a delicate bonus to the dark green clean foliage, red bark and a nice size. Use as a step down from Sunset manzanita or step up from Arctostaphylos Uvas-ursi or mix in patches with Seaside Daisy, Thrift and Encelia cailfornica and Carmel Sur manzanita. This manzanita would also be a stunner in coastal gardens with shore pine or bishop pine as a pine forest retreat. Big sur manzanita will tolerate beach sand or adobe and, with some afternoon shade, can commonly tolerate the SAN JOAQUIN VALLEY,(pity the plants, poor souls). Although it is native on the coastal bluffs this manzanita, along with most other manzanitas, cannot tolerate salt spray very well. If you live next to the coast use it out of the direct salt spray. Sometimes a boulder or log is enough to protect it, sometimes you'll need the wind shadow of a house. What's the matter with a wonderful plant that looks good all year?
