St. Helena Manzanita
A big, bold, large growing manzanita for those who want a more tree-like manzanita to really show off that gorgeous bark and take a prominent place in the garden. St. Helena is very garden tolerant manzanita, though it’s still advised to not give it any summer water after the first year or two getting it established. Handsome grey, green leaves and pure white flowers in late winter. This is a great focal point or large shrub/tree to build a garden around.
