Arctostaphylos ‘Pacific Mist’

Ericaceae
Evergreen, Shrubs

Grows 2–3 ft. tall, 6–15 ft. wide, with spreading stems that turn upward near ends. Deep reddish brown bark, narrow gray-green leaves, sparse white bloom. Needs pinching to force branching, but eventually forms a good, dense groundcover that is also quite disease-resistant. Best away from the immediate coast; performs well even in dry shade.
