What do these mean?



Vine Hill manzanita is a rare manzanita from Sonoma County. Naturally rare, it has become only more scarce as its habitat has been consumed by development. The species now naturally occurs only in the one acre Vine Hill Preserve. Many selections of this vigorous manzanita have been taken over the years. All these are well known for vigorous upright growth and bright green leaves held against smooth burnt red bark. ‘Harmony’ is the lowest growing selection at a mature height of about three feet. It stands out among the Vine Hill selections for its large leaves and compact size.
