Description

Some kind of manzanita, to be sure, but which one? This little cluster was about 3-4 cm across, observed in coastal scrub.

Thanks for the ID, but this was on a bush/tree that was at least head-high, and I believe A. hookeri is a low-lying shrub that doesn't occur in San Mateo county, at least according to CalFlora. I didn't really know much about IDing manzanita when I took this, so I failed to capture leaf details, or any sense of how long the pedicel was. These days I try to be more diligent.

yeah, i doubt you can ID it to species with just flowers (like you can with many species). If I had to guess I'd say A. glandulosa, since I see some hairs on stems/leaves in the background, but that's definitely a low confidence guess so I don't want to mark it as my ID (maybe we need an option to mark down 'guesses'?)
