John Dourley Manzanita
John Dourley Manzanita is one of the best Arctostaphylos groundcovers! The new growth on is shockingly red before settling to a gorgeous grey/blue with red lining the edges of the leaves. In time it will develop a beautiful cinnamon colored bark. Requires no summer water once established and does an amazing job of blocking weeds out.
