A narrow endemic found only in the Los Osos/Montaña de Oro area of San Luis Obispo County. We continue to experiment with selections of this remarkably beautiful manzanita and currently offer an Austin Griffiths selection from Montaña de Oro State Park. It features gray-green leaves with contrasting rose-pink stems. The bark is a dark chocolate. Semi-erect form. A particularly disease resistant form found at the mouth of Hazard Canyon in 1984. Our ten-year-old mother plant is 6’ high with a 12’ spread. Best in coastal climates with full sun and well-drained soils. Hardy to 10F.
