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." Read more here.

Tips from the pros: Water it until it is established (approximately 1 year) and then stop. Yearly shearing will assure an improved branching structure while increasing the flower production. Reseeds readily - deadhead and pull seedlings.
