Arctostaphylos densiflora Howard McMinn * Vine Hill Manzanita
This medium sized California native shrub grows nearly as well in dry shade as in full
sun. The small leaves and dense foliage of Arctostapyhlos Howard McMinn makes a great
screen. I have seen individual plants get to 4' tall and 6' across. While Vine Hill
Manzanita is a fairly easy garden plant it requires a drying out period between summer
irrigation cycles and reasonably well drained soil. Arctostaphylos Howard McMinn is a
nectar source for the Monarch Butterfly and the California Dogface Butterfly and a great addition to
the butterfly garden.
