Manzanita: "Vandenberg"

It might not look like much to the stranger's eye, but this manzanita shrub was a rescue. What started out as a scrawny little start my husband spotted in the "sad plants" section of a local nursery we love, has found it's rooting and is beginning to thrive in our backyard.

Manzanitas are native to the West Coast, and while this one was discovered near Vandenberg AFB in Southern California, we still consider all of the arctostaphylos (manzanita) native plants, as they thrive from Washington to Oregon to California in a variety of climates...and are drought tolerant which I love. We have another, larger "Sentinel" manzanita which is flourishing as well and, well folks, I could get more if space permitted...
