Regional Native Plants of Particular Interest: Arctostaphylos glandulosa, glaucous form on Otay Mountain

Light blue-grey leaves, bushy plant, grows up to 6 feet, but usually less.   Blooms winter, red berries in Spring to Summer.   Burl sprouter, grows back if killed to the ground by fire, or cutting back to the ground.  Surrounding plants in photo are green leaf Manzanita of the same species, and Chamaebatia australis.  East Otay Mtn. range.  I also saw this sort of glaucous form on Guatay Mountain, near Guatay of course.
