Arctostaphylos viscida, with the common names whiteleaf manzanita and sticky manzanita, is a species of manzanita.

Arctostaphylos viscida is a plant of chaparral and coniferous forests of some elevation. It is native to California and Oregon.
It is a treelike shrub reaching up to 5 meters (16 ft). The stems may be smooth or fuzzy, and are often glandular. The leaves are rounded to oval, sometimes slightly toothed or with hairs along the edges, and usually dull green on both surfaces.
When in flower the shrub is packed heavily with densely bunching inflorescences of urn-shaped white to pale pink flowers. The fruits are shiny red or greenish-brown drupes between one half and one centimeter wide. Seeds require fire for germination.
The Miwok of northern California used the fruits to make cider.
