Howard McMinn Manzanita


Arctostaphylos ‘Howard McMinn’ is a medium to large Manzanita for almost any garden, tolerant of many garden conditions. It is actually a hybrid variety and has a beautiful clean delicate green foliage.

I love the profuse display of bloom throughout late spring making it a show piece in a garden coming out of winter.

I also particularly enjoy the beautiful and amazing smooth red bark which is displayed as the plant matures to an open habit. (Pruning also can enhance this look). Great for an accent or even massing for larger areas.
