The Manzanita has a shrub- like development. These plants give origin to a brush with a rounded form. The Manzanita Is small in size; in spring it assumes a greenred colouring. These are evergreen plants, which means they keep their leaves year round.
We suggest to position the the Manzanita in a sunny spot at least a few hours a day. We suggest growing the the Manzanita in the garden; these are very rustic plants.These plants lose the aerial part during the coldest months of the year. As spring begins, stems and leaves quickly start to reproduce.
Water sporadically, with 2-3 glasses of water , leaving the soil dry for a few days before watering again; when watering we suggest avoiding excesses, but to wet the substratum well. Let's act every 1-2 weeks . Perennial plants are subject to some months of vegetational rest. During these months it isn't necessary to water them.
Generally during this time of year we suggest a pre-emptive treatment with wide range insecticide and with a systemic fungicide, to prevent the attack from part of the aphids and the development of fungus diseases, often favoured by a mild and damp climate.
These plants prevail well drained soils, with a low PH.
These plants need to be grown in a specific soil for acidophilic plants. The indications given in this article are related to a medium size plant.
