Plant Highlights

Ghostly, or Santa Cruz, Manzanita silver-gray foliage contrasts brilliantly with red bark. This 8 foot high shrub produces bell shaped white flowers in the late winter. Water generously in the winter and very cautiously in the summer months. This is an intriguing addition to a landscape due to its beautiful silver foliage. Well draining soils are recommended. Tolerates shallow soil.
