Rubber Rabbitbrush (Ericameria nauseosa)

General: Rubber Rabbitbrush (Ericameria nauseosa) is a large, upright shrub with long, narrow, densely hairy gray-green leaves and sometimes a strong odor. Clusters of yellow flowers are produced at the ends of the branches during fall.

Rubber Rabbitbrush is a fairly common component of vegetation communities in dry, well-drained gravelly areas on upper bajadas into the lower mountains in the Upper Sonoran (Pinyon-Juniper Woodland) and Transition (Yellow Pine Forest) life zones.

Around Las Vegas, look for Rubber Rabbitbrush in the mountains around town, particularly along roads on Mt. Charleston and up in the Sheep Range.

Family: Sunflower (Asteraceae), formerly Chrysothamnus nausiosus.
