Ericaceae, Arctostaphylos hookeri ssp. montana, Mt. Tamalpais manzanita – Marin County, California

February 3, 2014


I believe this is Arctostaphylos hookeri ssp. montana, formerly Arctostaphylos montana, a somewhat rare Manzanita species, photographed on Mt. Tamalpais in Marin County, California. Not photos of the flower, sorry.

Any ID confirmation or correction greatly appreciated via the comment forum

    Whatever it is, its lovely. Those berries are very beautiful and the soft green leaves set them off nicely. Would make a lovely garden shrub
