Arctostaphylos Emerald Carpet

might as well be a lawn manzanita.

We currently do not grow this plant.

Emerald Carpet manzanita is an evergreen groundcover preferred by the non-native folks that want to plant a 'native'. This is a hybrid between Arctostaphylos uva-ursi and Arctostaphylos nummularia. Emerald carpet is drought tolerant from Ft. Bragg thru Oregon along the coast, anywhere else, treat as a drought tolerant lawn. This manzanita needs a rich, well- draining soil to look green, in infertile soils it will look yellow. Does ok in the San Joaquin Valley with 1-3 times/week water. It can be effective as a 1 or 2 plant buffer between a lawn and other manzanitas. Intermix with non-native Helianthemum (Sunrose), their requirements are nearly the same.(The Helianthemum is probably tougher.) Click here for more about California Manzanitas(Arctostaphylos).
