Explore the versatile world of the Ericameria nauseosa, formerly known as the Chrysothamnus nauseosus. This plant is commonly referred to as Rubber Rabbitbrush or Gray Rabbitbrush and it thrives in the arid regions of western North America. This perennial shrub grows between 12 and 90 inches, producing golden-yellow, pungent-smelling flowers in late summer and early fall. With its greenish-gray, flexible stems and soft felt-like covering, it has gained popularity as an ornamental xeriscaping shrub, ideal for areas where water conservation is paramount. This hardy plant thrives in a wide range of coarse, alkaline soils, common in desert environments. An integral part of the ecosystem, this plant not only serves as food for browsing wildlife on winter ranges but also holds cultural significance. The Zuni people use the blossoms of the bigelovii variety to make yellow dye, and the stems to craft baskets. Its potential is not limited to this, as rubber rabbitbrush is being considered as a source of hypoallergenic rubber, optative for people with latex allergies. Discover the resilience, beauty, and potential uses of Ericameria nauseosa.
