Manzanita Bark

We planted the notoriously slow-growing Louis Edmunds Manzanita (Arctostaphylos stanfordiana bakeri) over three years ago when we planted the bulk of our California natives.

The scrub is just old enough to curl away it's bark for the first time. As the plant matures, the bark will peel away revealing smooth wood underneath.

This planted started as a one-gallon transplant. It has been worth the wait watching it slowly grow.
