Description

Dwarf forms of rabbitbrush occur everywhere in the West, but this compact, dome-like strain found along the Front Range is especially dense and silvery-blue with bright golden flowers in late summer and fall. An indispensible and indestructible native with multi-season interest. Also known as “dwarf blue rabbitbrush.”
