E. nauseosa, commonly known as “rubber rabbitbrush,” is an excellent plant for erosion control. This shrubby aster astablishes quickly and can grow to 6 ft. or more. It is drought-tolerant and versatile but does especially well in disturbed areas with alkaline soils in upland desert habitats and grasslands between 3,000-8,000 ft. in elevation. The bright yellow flowers bloom between July-October. It is pollinated by bees and butterflies. Plant in full sun, in well-draining soil.
