Vine Hill Manzanita


A medium to large shrub, Howard McMinn is one of the more commonly used manzanitas. Easy to grow and adaptable to various conditions, this handsome plant has glossy green, smooth leaves and white to pale pink blossoms. The beautiful, smooth, twisted branches are mahogany colored. Prefers full sun but will tolerate partial shade better than other shrubby manzanitas.
