Point Reyes Bearberry

Arctostaphylos uva-ursi 'Point Reyes'

A Pacific Northwest native evergreen shrub with a low-growing, spreading mat form. Dark green foliage takes on red and purple tones during winter, around the same time clusters of pink and white flowers begin to emerge. Edible berries that follow winter blooms attract local birds. Tolerant to poor soil, drought, and sunny conditions, this groundcover manzanita makes a charming addition to a native landscape.

Common Nursery Plant Forms

We use plant forms to describe how a plant has been grown in our nursery. Here are some common nursery plant forms explained.

A bush or multi refers to a shrub or small tree grown with multiple stems.

A standard has been trained to have a single trunk.
Many bush/multi plants are also available in standard form, so be sure to check the form when you add plants to your cart.

A column refers to a tree or shrub grown into a tall, narrow shape.

An espalier is a plant trained to grow in a two-dimensional form against a trellis.

Staked plants will be tied to a wooden or plastic stake during the growing process. This technique is generally used on vines but is sometimes used for certain trees or shrubs.
