A BIT MORE...

Arctostaphylos ‘Point Reyes’ has the heat tolerance common to the species, with a slightly larger and more closely set dark green leaf.  Arctostaphylos uva-ursi thrives in poor sandy soils, as long as they’re a little bit acidic.  ‘Point Reyes’ does not spread much faster than any of the other varieties in the species, but given mulch between individual plants, it can be used with great success for long-term hillside stabilization.
