Austin Griffith Manzanita prefers a sandy soil but does well in clay as long as it does not stand in water. It is one of the most stable native plants. The nectar is superior to almost any plant. Chipmunks love the berries and birds tend to eat the flowers. Hummingbirds, butterflies and even the ‘normal’ birds love the Austin Griffiths Manzanita flowers.
