No. 6456. Arctostaphylos pastillosa Jepson. Berries as large as crabapples. Remarkable for their size, as large as the largest A. glauca berries. Shrubs rather small, 3 or 4 ft. h., on rocky ridge (lava), near Cold Spring, locally known as Bald Mt. The stone not yet formed! It seems much slower of formation than in other species -- A. viscida, A. manzanita, which have a formed stone even if not very hard, at this stage. The stone in 6456 at this stage is hardly more than like an apple core.
