This native is widespread from the western U.S. to Canada and Mexico, at elevations from 2000 to 8000 feet. This semi-evergreen shrub has aromatic narrow, grey-green leaves and the stems are covered in white wooly hairs. In the fall it produces masses of fluffy golden flowers, followed by tan seeds. To encourage a denser form and prevent reseeding, plant in full sun, prune hard in late spring, water sparingly, and don’t use fertilizer.
