Rabbit Brush, Chamisa
Erect, freely branching shrubs to 6 ft. tall, 3 ft. wide; branches are white, with greenish upper surfaces. Gray-green and narrow leaves often drop by bloom time in late summer or fall, when branching, flat-topped or somewhat rounded clusters of fluffy flowers appear at stem ends. Leaves and stems are strongly aromatic. Useful for roadside or naturalistic plantings, revegetation, low-care or no-care borders. Numerous subspecies of both plants described below exist; some are better suited than others to the coldest zones.Chrysothamnus nauseosus
