What do these mean?



Pajaro manzanita ‘Paradise’ is a selection of one of the most ornate of California’s many manzanita species. The form is oval. The auriculate leaves emerge a deep red and mature to gray green with a red margin. These contrast well with the purple, shredding bark. The pink winter flowers are followed by conspicuous red berries. Pajaro manzanita prefers well-draining acidic soil and little water once established. Pajaro manzanita is native to the coast and coastal mountains in Monterrey and southern Santa Cruz Counties.
