For a rockery or sunny slope, evergreen Arctostaphylos 'John Dourley' would be ideal. Young leaves are bronze, thickening like eucalyptis leaves and becoming gray blue as they age. Because of the pink immature stems, the blush on the small bell-shaped flowers, and the outline of red around each leaf, the plant often seems enveloped in a pink haze. In addition to all these features, the mature branches become woody and are clad with patches of mahogany bark.
