Manzanita shrubs are evergreen plants that are native to the western coast of North America, from British Columbia to California. They typically grow to be 3-20 feet tall, and are characterized by their smooth, reddish-brown bark that peels away in thin sheets, revealing a polished, reddish-brown wood underneath. The branches of the manzanita shrub are twisted and gnarled, and often have a striking sculptural quality.

The leaves of the manzanita shrub are small, leathery, and dark green, with a glossy surface and serrated edges. They are usually less than an inch long, and are arranged alternately along the stems. In the late winter or early spring, the manzanita shrub produces clusters of small, bell-shaped flowers that range in color from white to pink, and are a valuable source of nectar for bees and other pollinators.

After the flowers fade, the manzanita shrub produces small, round fruit that is typically less than half an inch in diameter. The fruit is often eaten by birds and other wildlife, and has a slightly sweet flavor. Manzanita shrubs are valued for their ornamental qualities, and are often used in landscaping due to their attractive bark, twisted branches, and year-round greenery.
