Sunset manzanita  growing with no water system in a native garden in Arroyo Grande - grid24_24
Dante D'Alfonso installed this almost ten years ago on some of the worst soil I've seen. In a few places the shale is solid and at the surface. He planted where he could get a pick into it. Manzanitas did real well on this site. No water system. No extra water after first few weeks.
