This is another species that is excellent in its range, and a pain elsewhere. If you have a mountain cabin in snow country this one's worth trying as a groundcover as it grows about 8 foot across and less than a foot tall. It needs no water after the first summer. It has dark green foliage with red stems in a groundcovering mass. In the summer it will have flowers followed by berries. This plant needs a real winter climate with snow cover to be happy. Pinemat Manzanita is grown in Britain(Hay) and probably would be successful in the Pacific Northwest.
