Welcome Fall!

dwarf rabbitbrush, Chrysothamnus nauseosus nauseosus

One of my favorite shrubs is in full bloom right now.  It says "fall is here!" to me like no other plant.  I profiled rabbitbrush, also known as chamisa, here a few years ago.  I'm heading out soon for a road trip through Wyoming and Montana, and I hope to see plenty of this cheery fellow along the way.

I am not familiar with this, but I like the yellow haze it has.

This plant has a huge range throughout the Rocky Mountain West. I love its laid-back form and cheery yellow color!
