Plant Highlights

We have grown to love this great performing low groundcover manzanita. Woods Compact is one of the few manzanitas that will stay compact and full in shade situations. It will take part shade anywhere, but can also thrive in full sun in coastal locations. Woods Compact manzanita has glossy green foliage, small pink, urn-shaped flowers in late winter, which go on to form beautiful red fruit. It will stay under 1' in height and spread to about 3' across. Supplemental summer water once per month is recommended. This manzanita is a great option for planting under oak trees.

This is my favorite groundcover manzanita. It is growing faster than the Carmel Sur manzanita in my garden.
