6. For the Tops in Shrubbiness category, there’s always Ceanothus “Tassajara Blue”, a classic Cal. Lilac for your enjoyment.

4. I see Manzanitas have their own category this year. Arctostaphylos pajaroensis “Warren Roberts” was a strong contender in the past, and has come through with the win this year with their big juicy berries!

3. For the Most Blooms, Dudleya cymosa – we seem to have our 2nd Dudleya on this list. It’s an outstanding performance by the Dudleyas this year!
