Arctostaphylos pajaroensis 'Bretts Beauty'
Brett's Beauty Manzanita
Native to (or naturalized in) Oregon:
- Broadleaf evergreen shrub, similar to the species, but its new growth is reddish-copper. It is also similar to the cultivar 'Paradise'.
- Sun or light shade. Best on well-drained soils
- Hardy to USDA Zone 8? Collected by Brent Hall of the U.C. Santa Cruz Arboretum and given as a gift to a local nurseryman. Years later the nurseryman introduced it as 'Brent's Beauty'; Brent had suggested a very different cultivar name.
