DistributionPointleaf manzanita occurs discontinuously throughout the mountainous areas of Arizona, New Mexico, southern California, extreme southern Nevada and Utah, western Texas, and Mexico [46,50,66,89,104]. In California pointleaf manzanita occurs along the Coast Ranges south to the Santa Ynez, Liebre, San Gabriel, San Bernardino, San Jacinto, Cuyamaca, and Laguna mountains. In Arizona pointleaf manzanita occurs frequently in foothills, mountain slopes, and canyons from the Virgin Mountains at the southern edge of Nevada-Utah boarder southeastward across the Mogollon Rim. From central Arizona and southern New Mexico east to the Chios Mountains of western Texas, pointleaf manzanita occurs less frequently on dry mountainous slopes. In Mexico pointleaf manzanita is found in abundance in the northern and central states from Chihuahua, Coahuila, and Nuevo Leon south to Mexico City. Pointleaf manzanita also occurs in the Sierra JuÃ¡rez and San Pedro Martir mountains of Baja California [1,27,28,84,106]. Plants database provides a distributional map of pointleaf manzanita.
