Arctostaphylos manzanita is tree-like in habit, growing in grassland, chapparal and woodlands from the San Francisco Bay area north to Humbolt County. Its beautiful bark glows reddish-brown on snaky branches. The leathery gray green leaves are broad and measure up to two inches in length. Among the earliest manzanitas to bloom, its urn-shaped flowers often begin to open in early winter. By early summer reddish spherical fruits appear.
