Arctostaphylos uva-ursi 'Green Supreme' (Manzanita) - Low-growing, dense and spreading evergreen groundcover 6 inches tall and up to 12 feet wide with glossy, bright green oblanceolate leaves and thin reddish branches and stems. White to pink flowers appear late spring to early summer - A. 'Green Supreme' does not set flower clusters as profusely as other varieties of manzanita. A major plus of this manzanita is that it has no center dieback. The juvenile structure is one of long, radiating runners; lateral branches are then sent out, eventually covering the area between the runners. It is drought resistant and grows well in clay soils. Does well in full sun. Hardy to about 15-20 degrees F. The name Arctostaphylos was given to the genus by the French (of Scottish descent) naturalist Michel Adanson (1707-1778), who first named the circumboreal Arctostaphylos uva-ursi for plants found in Europe. The name comes from the Greek words 'arktos' meaning "bear" and 'staphyle' meaning grapes in reference to bears eating the fruit and the common name Bearberry also references this fact.  This description is based on our research and observations made of this plant as it grows in our nursery, in the nursery garden and in other gardens that we have visited. We will also incorporate comments received from others and always appreciate getting feedback of any kind from those who have some additional information about this plant, in particular if this information is contrary to what we have written or if they have additional cultural tips that would aid others in growing Arctostaphylos 'Green Supreme'.
