Arctstaphylos Pacific Mist * Pacific Mist Manzanita

Arctostaphylos Pacific Mist brings a soft gray to the pallate. The Pacific Mist Manzanita grows 2-3 feet tall and about twice that width. Arctostaphylos Pacific Mist blooms Winter into early Spring with white bell shaped flowers. Arctostaphylos Pacific Mist grows in full sun at the coast and in near coastal valleys. This manzanita will grow in partial shade but given too much shade the plants will get leggy. Arctostaphylos Pacific Mist prefers well drained soils and requires a drying out period between irrigation cycles. Manzanita berries feed the birds and wildlife durning the late Spring months. With heavier soils I try to plant Arctostaphylos Pacific Mist on a slope or on a raised mound or bed. Arctostaphylos Pacific Mist is a host plant for the Western Tussock Moth Caterpillar and is often visited by Monarchs, California Dogface, and Cloudless Sulfur Butterflies looking for nectar when in bloom. Manzanitas suffer from fungal dieback. Proper sanitation is important not to spread the problem with your tools.
