"Mama and Baby Bear manzanita were named after three shade houses that once stood on the Santa Margarita nursery site. The smallest house was baby bear, where both these seedlings came up. Then mama and Papa bear shade houses. My dad loved to make up ridiculous names for the greenhouse so we were all forced to say them out loud to his great enjoyment. Some were named after scientist. Einstein, Clemence. Some where named after his heros, Larry, Moe, Curly, Abbot and Costello. Some were just fun to say, Eha, haha, baja. We had to get rid of HAHA as this combo caused mass confusion and tuned out to not be so haha after all.. These seedlings just came up amongst the stock in the small structure called baby bear. My dad thought they were so neat looking he just took the structure down and let them go. Mama bear has larger leaves and flower. It also has whiter flowers. Baby bear has much darker pink flowers but they are smaller, and smaller gray tinged leaves. The parentage is probably A. desiflora, A. manzanita and or A. Louis Edmunds, which greatly reassembles baby bear in coloration. Mama bear more resembles A. manzanita. "
