A manzanita introduction by Ken Taylor from San Bruno mountain. This Arctostaphylos might be the uva-ursi forma leobreweri saved from extinction by James Roof. Nice plant, tolerant of gardens and even drip. Not the most drought tolerant plant, but it is flat and real happy in most of coastal California with a little extra water. Use along a lawn border or walkway where the plant needs to stay low and there is some extra water. This plant really needs to be washed off with a hose or sprinkler every week or two during the summer months to be it's best. Plants that would look good and do ok with this plant include Satureja douglasi Monkey Flowers, and Zauschneria septentrionalis, a California fushcia
