(Bearberry, Emerald Carpet Bearberry, Kinnikinnick)

It is a hybrid selection of Arctostaphylos uva ursi, which is native to a large range in Eurasia.

Growth is low and spreading, and becomes quite dense and uniform with...

(Manzanita)

This incredible native shrub is the hallmark of California’s most beautiful wildlands. It is without question one of the most drought resistant broadleaf shrubs of the West. Named from the Spanish for “little-apple” or manza-nita, this shrub or small tree is native to most of the north state mountains, but only on sites moderately sloping to near vertical. Since no rain may fall from spring to late fall, these shrubs are incredibly tolerant of dry conditions and will not abide supplemental watering....
