Hooker Manzanita

Arctostaphylos hookeri/hookeri

Hooker Manzanita The leaves of Hooker's Manzanita are very different than leaves on the other types of Manzanita in the park. The leaves have very obvious stems (petioles) and the leaves are very green, not blue green like the Pajaro and Brittle-leaf Manzanitas. The Hooker's Manzanita tends to grow closer to the ground, spreading out rather than up, unless it has no choice. When it is surrounded by other plants, it can grow fairly tall.
