Arctostaphylos x 'Emerald Carpet'

  • Arctostaphylos x Emerald Carpet bearberry

Low growing, evergreen, manzanita groundcover 1 foot tall, 4 to 6 foot spread.  Rich green foliage year round. Small, bell shaped white flowers late winter. Light to medium shade is best, prefers deep irrigation every 2 to 3 weeks in hot climates. Moderately fast growing and can handle heavier soils if not overwatered. This is a hybrid probably between A. uva-ursi and A. nummularia.
