Ghostly Manzanita truly lives up to its name with its pale white and silvery foliage that has traces of pink, especially in the young stems! It’s easily the most silver foliaged of any manzanita we’ve seen and we adore its year round beauty. Late winter flowers are pure white and adored by hummingbirds. Grows very quickly in our climate and can be pruned in July to keep it from getting too gangly. Grows to 8’x4′ and is incredibly drought tolerant once established.
