Manzanita Berry Season
Arctostaphylos pajaroensis “Warren Roberts”
Did you ever wonder who these people are that got plant varieties named after them?
Well, Warren Roberts is the Superintendant of the Arboretum at UC Davis.
He comes from a long line of Kern County cattle ranchers and says he inherited some of his plant know-how from a Gold Rush-era great-grandmother who was well respected for her knowledge of herbs.
