Top Plants For Sonoma County
One of most garden tolerant manzanitas.
Smooth, dark mahogany bark contrasts with small glossy green leaves on this dense, rounded California native. Pinkish white urn-shaped blossoms hang in clusters from late winter to early spring followed by red berries relished by birds. Tolerates heavy soil but does best with good drainage. Prune shrubs to encourage density; thin out branches to train as a small tree. Other species are shrubs or groundcovers.
