Appears to be Franciscan Manzanita (Arctostaphylos franciscana). There are several plantings in this area, on old dune sands. This species once occurred within the former Masonic Cemetery (now the University of San Francisco campus), on serpentine soils, just a few hundred yards south of the location of these plantings.
