Description

In the middle of a large mixed stand of A. tomentosa and A. hookeri, this individual stands out - mainly due to its tiny leaves. It is upright, 2+ meters tall, and has no visible burl (I was also unable to find a burl by digging with my fingers, but there are several large stems suggesting a deeply buried burl is possible). The stems are as red and smooth as the surrounding hookeri, but the twigs are white and nonglandular puberulent to tomentose (although there are minute black spots on some twigs suggesting some glandularity). The leaves are only 1-2cm long, strongly bifacial, abaxially tomentose, and sparsely hairy above. They are similar in color to the surrounding tomentosa (much duller than the hookeri). The raceme-like (0-1 branches) nascent inflorescence is pendant and minutely nonglandular hairy (similar to the twigs) with leaf-like, lanceolate bracts. It shows no sign of preparing to bloom, putting it out of sync with both the tomentosa (which is already blooming) and the hookeri (which is about to start). I only found one berry that wasn't hollow and it appeared to have a fused nut – although it could have just gotten stuck together as it decayed.

So is this some kind of cross-clade tomentosa/hookeri hybrid? A really unusual A. crustacea crinita with a hidden burl? Or just one of the many, many obligate seeders I've never heard of?

The leaf comparison photo has the subject plant on the left followed by a hookeri leaf and a tomentosa leaf. The third photo shows it growing side by side with hookeri.

Another example of how difficult it can be to ID the local tetraploid manzanitas based on bark characteristics. This one has a lot of A. tomentosa-style gray, shredded bark on the larger stems, but the upright, isofacial, papillate leaves (and location in a stand of A. glandulosa) point strongly toward A. glandulosa ssp. glandulosa.

As usual the Jepson Key fails on Fort Ord...
resulting in Arctostaphylos tomentosa daciticola
At 4-5 meters tall, this one was as tall as our Toro Manzanitas or taller, ruling out A. crustacea?
Burl below and above.
Old stem bark persistent, gray, and shedding, not smooth.
Leaf surfaces differing in color and hairiness.
Twig hair not glandular.
Twig hair short and long bristles

iNat can only come up with Arbutus

David Styer's guide puts it at A. crustacea crinita which at least is found here but he mentions "shrubby growth habit" which rules this one out. I guess I am going to go with a record tall A. crustacea crustacea

Has bifacial leaves, but the length and glandularity of the twig hairs are a better match for A. glandulosa. There is plenty of unambiguous A. glandulosa in the area and nothing that is clearly A. crustacea. (Some A. crustacea ssp. rosei have been ID'd in the area, but given the inland location and the fact that the surrounding manzanita appears to be all A. glandulosa, might they be better understood as A. glandulosa cushingiana? -- A possibility suggested by @paulexcoff: https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/7162936)

I struggled with this one because many of the leaves, while gray, were nearly glabrous, rather than canescent (I've since read that leaves of this species can lose their canescence in age). I thought it might be A. glandulosa ssp. cushingiana, but I could find no sign of a burl.

Some of the leaves are lobed, but none enough to be clasping.

Description

I believe this is the same manzanita in this observation from 2017: https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/8516939 (I was with @ventanaphile when he made the observation). While the auriculate, clasping leaves are the same as the leaves of the surrounding A. cruzensis, this plant differs from the others in some significant ways. It is upright, while they are prostrate. It has dense short hairs, as well as abundant long hairs (like A. purissima), while the others have the sparse hairs more typical of A. cruzensis. And the nascent inflorescences are somewhat different. While it shares the long, leaflike bracts of the surrounding plants, they have multi-branched panicles (See https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/137235679), while this plant has raceme-like to one branched inflorescences. The nascent inflorescences on the surrounding plants are still pointing upwards, while those on this plant are truly pendant. There was no fruit to be found, on any of the plants in the area, so I couldn't compare that. Don't think there's anything in the area it could hybridize with to create these variations, so I guess it's just an oddball.
