The word manzanita is the Spanish diminutive of manzana (apple). A literal translation would be little apple. Manzanita is generally 3-16 ft (1-5 m) tall, 6-10 in (15-25 cm) trunk diameter. The gnarled and twisted branches of Manzanita make it a favorite wood for bird perches and aquarium driftwood. However, its form as a shrub generally means that its beautiful wood is only straight enough and long enough to be used in very small projects. Heartwood is brownish red, sometimes with a bright orange hue. Sapwood is a pale off-white to light brown; clearly distinguished from heartwood, but not sharply demarcated. Burls and wild or swirled grain is common.
