Plant Highlights

A rare and endangered coastal species, this slow growing, and rambling shrub makes an excellent ground cover to scramble over and around rocks or spill over walls. Expect it to grow to 3-5’ tall and equally wide. Gray evergreen foliage, red bark enhance the spring show of edible small whitish pink flowers. Enjoys poor, sandy, shallow soil. Cold hardiness combined with salt and drought tolerance makes this a good selection for coastal gardens.This form of Del Mar Manzanita was brought to our attention by Greg Rubin of California's Own Native Landscape Design and was used prominently in his design at the Lux Art institute.
Introduced by Moosa Creek Nursery. Horticultural selection
