Plant Highlights

This is a spreading ground-cover manzanita with shiny gray-green leaves. Ideal for coastal gardens especially thriving in the beach sand. It will also tolerate heavier soils. It is fast growing and will tolerate dry shade which is unusual for manzanitas. However, it does need pruning to keep it in check. Pacific Mist produces white flowers in late winter, followed by berries that are attractive to birds. You'll enjoy this planted over a retaining wall, as a groundcover or in a container.

Hybrid, A. silvicola x ?; origin = volunteer seedling (19 ) in hybrid manzanita area; introduced by Rancho Santa Ana Botanic Garden 1981.

Love this plant because its green and blue tones. goes well in any garden (relatively close to the coast) and can easily be pruned.
