Several of this ceanothus taxon were seen in bloom on the south slope of Rincon Ridge. The height of this specimen is about 130 cm. Note that there was a somewhat recent burn of this chaparral area, which results in an outcome of most taxa not yet achieving their ultimate heights.
Several of this uncommon manzanita were seen on the south slope of Rincon Ridge. The lateral spreading nature of this taxon yields a height of about 55 cm and a breadth of somewhat over one meter. Another diagnostic of the subspecies is the smooth, shiny leaves borne on leaf petioles of about five mm.
