A Cistus nursery introduction collected from northern Lake County in south-central Oregon, this one is huge in stature, an unusually robust manzanita reaching over 15' in 5–8 years! Green-gray-blue leaves on orange branches surround white urn flowers with a pink blush in December to February—very early. The hummers will be delighted! Consider it a small tree or very large shrub, in either case, it's a dry garden candidate that will accept more water than many Arctostaphylos.
