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.
