Description: Members of the rabbitbrush genus - Chrysothamnus spp. - are among the best-known of western shrubs (Johnson 1987; McArthur and Welch 1986; McArthur and others 2004, 1979). The genus is endemic to western North America and is made up of 16 species (Anderson 1986; McArthur and Meyer 1987). It has recently been partially subsumed under the new genus Ericameria, formerly an infraspecific taxon within the related genus Haplopappus (Anderson 1995; USDA NRCS 2001). Because the durability of this nomenclatural change has yet to be demonstrated, the decision here is to follow the traditional nomenclature.

Keywords: Chrysothamnus Nutt., rabbitbrush
