Arctostaphylos x media 'Peter Ehrlich'



Add to wishlist Remove from wishlist
A remarkable Manzanita native to the southern Mendocino Coast which features unusually large rounded leaves for a groundcover type. Makes a dense cover mounding to 24"-30" tall and 8' + across with white flowers and bird attractant small fruit. The leaves seem verging on succulent giving this a uniquely appealing look. The name commemorates Peter Ehrlich, former head Forester at the Presidio in San Francisco, who died in a bike accident in 2017.
