Santa Lucia Manzanita is a rare, evergreen shrub, 2' by 6' with 1" white leaves and red bark. It grows in rocky shale, in San Luis Obispo County and is much whiter and lower than Arctostaphylos obispoensis (other than that they are close). It has been stable here, so tolerates a wider range of conditions than its origin would suggest. Companion plants are Quercus dumosa, Lupinus albifrons, Cupressus sargentii, Lithocarpus densiflora and Pinus attenuata.
Makes a very different groundcover that looks like nothing I can really think of. Maybe a artistic attempt of a groundcover of red stems and silver.
