Description

This manzanita is one of the many selections originating from Las Pilitas Nursery in Santa Margarita. It is thought to be a chance hybrid of Arctostaphylos pilosula and Arctostaphylos densiflora or A. pungens. Ian Bush manzanita grows in an open, rounded form to about six feet, with smooth red bark and pointed olive green leaves. The modest mature height is somewhat rare among manzanitas. The winter flowers are light pink. Ian Bush manzanita is tolerant of a range of conditions, but fairly well-draining soil and ample sun are best.
