Arctostaphylos rudis 'Burton Beauty' looks a bit like a columnar
Howard McMinn. However, unlike Howard McMinn that grows in
northern California in clay soil and moderate rainfall, Burton
Beauty grows in very low rainfall (10 in) in sand.
This is a shagless shagbark manzanita that grows (grew?) in sand on
hard pan in Burton Mesa in Lompoc. The plant looks very much like a
densiflora Manzanita, but it will grow in beach sand with little
care. It is a nice dark green with reddish hues and is about 5' tall
and 3' wide. Burton Beauty is good for a small specimen Manzanita
for a corner, or if you want some green along a long narrow bed
against a fence or wall. It is not a Manzanita for heavy clay.
