Arctostaphylos purissima 'Vandenberg'
A beautiful upright manzanita selection to 3’ tall and 8’ spread. Clusters of white flowers are nestled among large lush green leaves in springtime, attracting hummingbirds. 'Vandenberg' responds well to full sun (although it may need afternoon shade in hot inland climates) and occasional to supplemental watering once established. Hardy to 15 F. Arctostaphylos purissima ‘Vandenberg’ is available this week in fifteen gallon containers.
