Pacific Mist Manzanita

Arctostaphylos Manzanita 'Pacific Mist'

I fell in love with Manzanitas while visiting the coastal Oregon town of Manzanita. The specimens gracing homeowners’ landscape there are mostly a taller variety, with smooth, deep, red-brown bark and teardrop shaped blue green leaves. Later, when back in Seattle, I spied a groundcover variety tucked in among taller plants at the nursery and figured it would be a great solution to cover the dry, rocky area underneath the new power pole along our easement. This plant has a softer, more silvery foliage with low and very wide growth habit. I think it’s going to be perfect.
