Ishi Pishi Manzanita
A northern California selection of manzanita by the great Arcto-phile Sean Hogan. “Arcto” meaning Arctostaphylos in this case, not a person who collects teddy bears. Named for the Ishi Pishi Falls on the Klamath River, Ishi Pishi Manzanita is a wonderful selection featuring stunning blue green leaves and some of the sexiest branches you might ever come across.
