4. ‘Emerald Carpet’ Manzanita (Arctostaphylos ‘Emerald Carpet’)Garden hybrid from two North American natives‘Emerald Carpet’ manzanita is a particularly low-growing manzanita hybrid (cross between A. uva-ursi and A. nummularia) that’s highly effective as a low-water lawn replacement. Growing 4 to 6 inches tall and 2 to 3 feet wide, ‘Emerald Carpet’ manzanita fills in to form an attractive evergreen carpet with medium-green leaves and red stems. In spring, the plant forms small white flowers.Walkability: Scores high for resilience and the ability to withstand repeated traffic, but its twiggy branches create an uneven surface for walking. It’s very effective planted in areas where you may need access but do not require a perfectly smooth surface or where you want a swath of medium green.Where it will grow: Hardy to 5 degrees Fahrenheit, or minus 15 degrees Celsius (zones 7 to 10)Water requirement: Low; drought-tolerantLight requirement: Full sun
