Manzanita means Little Apple and Arctostaphylos means Bear Berry. One of our most beautiful native plants, Manzanita is also nourishing & healing. I have caressed the wonderfully smooth bark of some special Manzanitas for 50 years on trails in the Oakland hills. Look closely at Manzanita Sky, can you see the DNA helixes on some of the branch tips!
