Arctostaphylos glauca, Los Angeles Big Berry manzanita, is generally a small manzanita.
A Big berry manzanita, Arctostaphylos glauca, from the Santa Monica Mountains. This one was originally in the area of Mullhuland Hwy. and Kanan Rd. near the site of the CNPS plant sale that we used to supply in the 1980's. The manzanita plant in the wild is long gone(too many fires) but we've kept the linage alive for decades in containers and finally in the ground here. Smooth red bark and clean shiny foliage with a yearly prize of white flowers make the plant quite attractive. Plant back a little of what was in Los Angeles with this manzanita.
