Rabbit brush is a nondescript two to four foot perennial that erupts in late summer with a passionate display of appealing yellow that has stopped many an artist and butterfly. It is native in many forms over much of the west and midwest. If you are planting a revegetation site you'll need to find the origin of the mother plant or you are liable to have a plant from the Great Plains trying to grow in a southern California project. If you're trying to plant a native garden in California, this one will do fine. When in flower rabbit brush will commonly have twenty butterflies on it at once.
Syn. Ericameria nauseosa.
