Comarostaphylis diversifolia var. planifolia

Summer Holly.

We are not selling this product. This page is for informational purposes only.
Comarostaphylis diversifolia planifolia is the flat leaf form of Summer Holly, .(Under extreme drought the leaves are not quite flat.) I found this form decades ago in San Diego County west of San Marco/Vista. It looked like a Toyon, but not quite. A little different and the plant didn't smell like Toyon. This bush mostly occurs on the Channel Islands.

In San Diego the associated plants were Adenostoma fasciculatum, Xylococcus bicolor, Rhamnus ilicifolia, Quercus dumosa, Baccharis pilularis, Rhus integrifolia, Heteromeles arbutifolia, and Lonicera denuata.

This is a very slow plant that is drought tolerant and rather hardy considering where it grows in the wild.

Comarostaphylis diversifolia var. planifolia tolerates sand.
Comarostaphylis diversifolia var. planifolia is great for a bird garden.
Foliage of Comarostaphylis diversifolia var. planifolia has color green and is evergreen.
