Plant Highlights

A medium size manzanita with all the characteristics of one of the larger species packed into a smaller specimen. If you love the look of the open-form, red-barked large manzanitas but have limited space then Ian Bush will be ideal. Ian Bush is a fast growing plant to about 4' and tends to stabilize at about 5'. It has beautiful green foliage with smooth red bark. The effect of the foliage is that it causes the pink flowers to really stand out at the end of the stems. The foliage almost creates a picture frame for each of the of flower clusters. It is thought to be a hybrid of Arctostaphylos densiflora and Arctostaphylos pungens.
