Glossy Leaf Manzanita
A very cool and rarely seen manzanita species from the Central California Coast, this select form of Glossy Leaf Manzanita features perfectly rounded leaves set in a geometric fashion around the stem. When it grows into a large weed suppressing dome, the texture on this shrub is incredible! Excellent for hot parking strips and a great candidate for coastal gardens.
