Arctostaphylos bakeri

Baker's Manzanita

Described as "seriously endangered" by the CNPS, the rare Baker's Manzanita occurs only on dry serpentine soils near Occidental in western Sonoma County. This handsome shrub grows up to 10 feet tall with grey-green foliage and the characteristic crooked trunk. Since first being described by Eastwood in 1934, it has undergone numerous unwelcome revisions to its taxonomy.

Louis Edmunds Manzanita

A well-branched shrub from 5 to 8 feet with slender, upswept branches and a greyish-green tint to the foliage. A big and bright pink bloom leads to abundant reddish berries. This cultivar is a beautiful specimen and a reliable performer in northern California.
