An AMAZINGLY SUPER HARDY evergreen groundcovermanzanita that forms a dense, weed-suppressing mat 1’ high & 4’ wide. Adorable pink hummingbird-attracting bell-shaped flowers emerge in Spring to be succeeded by bright red berries beloved by birdies. Glossy dark-green leaves turn a sumptuous burgundy in cool weather - a welcome treat in warm-Winter areas like ours where Autumn colors are rare & for cold Winter areas where evergreen groundcoversare invaluable! This fast-growing, disease resistant variety makes a lovely long-lived, low-maintenance groundcover& erosion controlplant. Great for under oaks! Provide good drainage for a happy plant. Loves sandy soil! Drought tolerant once established.
