'Howard McMinn' is THE perfect Manzanita!Other varieties can be fussy about conditions but this Manzanita is very forgiving & accepts clay & sandy soil. It can even be clipped like an azalea or pruned into a small tree to show off its beautiful cinnamon colored bark. If you have been afraid to plant a Manzanita, this is the one to start with. A. densiflora is also known as “Vine Hill Manzanita.” Grows up to 8' tall and 6-10' wide in garden conditions. The dark green foliage is very dense with small white to pink flowers that are very popular with hummingbirds & bees during the Winter and early Spring. Prefers coastal areas in California but thrives inland with occasional Summer water.
