Arctostaphylos nummularia features glossy, perfectly round leaves lining wiry stems on a dense, mounding, low-growing, evergreen shrub. New growth is tinted red and matures to bright green. White, urn shaped flowers attract hummingbirds. Manzanita can be a suitable groundcover for dry, sandy soils. Best growth occurs in acid soils. Excellent for edging and rock gardens.
