Rabbitbrush

Rubbery Rabbitbrush (Ericameria nauseosa, formerly Chrysothamnus nauseosus)

This plant isn’t native to the Sacramento Valley, but it’s quite abundant in harsh, cold desert mountains with gravelly soils all over the state. These photos were taken in Lebec, but there’s a lot of this plant in the Sierras.

If anyone is growing this around Sacramento – and it’s looking good – please leave a comment about your experience with the plant.
