Plant Highlights

Dr. Hurd Manzanita is an evergreen, multi-branched, treelike shrub with glossy, light green foliage and grows up to 15'. This manzanita can handle some summer water and a richer soil but will also grow well in clay soil, and tolerates sandy soil. Its brown-red bark and lovely multi-branched form makes this distinctive taller Arctostaphylos a prized specimen plant and focal point of the landscape in many gardens. Perfectly drought tolerant in most gardens, Dr. Hurd is one of the faster manzanitas and is a reliable shrub. This form was found by John Coulter of the Saratoga Horticultural Foundation in 1972.
