Here is the answer for those who want to grow a classy groundcover Manzanita that isn't Kinnikinnick. We planted a 1 gallon plant 5 years ago in our dry garden and it is 1 foot tall and making a 6 foot circle. Small glossy leaves on reddish stems and white bells in spring. Good things come in small packages.
Arctostaphylos afficionados Paul and Greg at Xera Plants say this is their favorite Manzanita which made it a must-have for us. Fits in the home garden and tolerant of garden conditions, this get just 2' high by 4' across in time. Rocking reddish new growth turns to blue-green. Pink flowers late winter. Drought tolerant.
This hybrid of Arctostaphylos coloradoensis is an introduction from the PlantSelect program in Colorado. This evergreen smaller Manzanita from the Rockies is going to be very cold and heat tolerant A low spreading shrub 1 to 2 feet tall and 4 to 6 feet across with soft pink flowers.
