How the distribution of manzanita in Arizona is governed by winter rain, acid soil, topographic elevation, and freezing weather

How the distribution of manzanita in Arizona is governed by winter rain, acid soil, topographic elevation, and freezing weather

Desert Plants 3(2): p. 108

Arctostaphylos pungens and Arctostaphylos pringlei are common species of manzanita in Arizona chaparral. When manzanita is planted for landscaping, natural conditions must be faithfully reconstructed for it to survive. The soil must be acidic, that is, derived from acidic or siliceous rocks. Manzanita will not grow well in alkaline soils of the Tucson-Phoenix area, especially where caliche is present. It has a deep root system that needs constant moisture.
