A Bit More

Archtostaphylos ‘Emerald Carpet’ is an evergreen low-growing shrub native to the western United States, including California. Coveted for its lush green foliage that brushes the ground and spreads 5 feet over time while never exceeding 14 inches in height, it adapts marvelously well to drought conditions. Round ½ long leaves stay exceedingly green all year. Rocky and parched soil mimics its native environment and is acceptable after plants are established before which deep irrigation is essential. It will thrive in Sunset zones 6-9 and 14-24. Very small pink flowers appear in late winter or early spring are inconspicuous but its fruit may attract birds. The name Manzanita is derived from the Spanish manzana and means “little apple”, a reference to its summertime fruit.
