White leaf Manzanita (aka Stickly whiteleaf manzanita) is native from Southern Oregon to California. In Portland gardens, this beautiful evergreen with green-grey leaves and red bark is appropriate for sunny, dry, drought tolerant pollinator gardens in a rocky or mulched setting, alongside other dry sun loving natives like oaks and pines. Bees, butterflies and hummingbirds love the dense clusters of flowers and birds enjoy the small fruits.
