Panchito Manzanita- Arctostaphylos x coloradensis

Chieftain Manzanita- Arctostaphylos x coloradensis ‘Chieftain'

Zone 4B-8, 6”-8” x 4’-6’

 

Outstanding selection of a native broadleaf evergreen shrub from the Uncompaghre Plateau. Waxy, urn-shaped, white flowers produce small red berries on established plants. First selected by Betsy Baldwin of Golden, Colorado. Shrub. Xeriscape. Read more here

Tips from the pros: Does best when planted on slopes with good drainage - consider expanded shale or squeegee when amending clay soil. Seems to prefer shade in the late afternoon. Give it room to grow, even though it's slow to establish.

Zones 5-8, 1.5’-3’ x 5’-8’

 

An Uncompaghre Plateau selection that is a much more vigorous manzanita than both the “Panchito" and “Mock Bearberry” introductions. Oval leaves emerge with a reddish tint changing to bold dark green, persisting through the winter making this an outstanding evergreen groundcover. White flowers tinged with pink appear in late spring followed by red berries in early fall. Striking, smooth cinnamon-red to purplish exfoliating bark appears as the plant matures. Tips from the pros: It's important that manzanita have excellent drainage. Will struggle in clay soils and wet conditions. Give it room to grow, even though it's slow to establish.
