Description

This is a hybrid manzanita involving the Vine Hill manzanita, Arctostaphylos densiflora. It was named by California Flora Nursery in Fulton after the landscape architect who selected it, Ron Lutsko. Although rarely grown, it has much to recommend it. The form is upright and round, with mahogany bark beneath dark green, lance-shaped leaves. The abundant winter flowers are tinted with a touch of pink. ‘Lutsko’s Pink’ makes a great specimen manzanita, especially if the structure is opened by light summer pruning. Site this manzanita in well-draining soil with plenty of sun.
