Wild Arctostaphylos glandulosa ssp. crassifolia stem sections regrowing from buds on tissue culture medium

The Del Mar manzanita (Arctostaphylos glandulosa ssp. crassifolia) does not have seeds that readily germinate, but they make up for it with buds that quickly resprout in tissue culture. Often, multiple buds burst on a single stem segment explant (pictured here), allowing whole culture lines to flourish in considerably less time than through germinating seeds in vitro
