Evolutionary Herbal Profile: Manzanita

I just moved to southern Oregon just a few years ago and have been around such different plants than when I lived in NW Washington! One of the most common plants that grows around here is Manzanita, a relative of the Madrone trees and the common medicinal Uva-Ursi (Arctostaphylos uva-ursi). This common urinary tract remedy is an incredible representation of the planet Venus in the form of a plant.
