Comments

Ericameria bloomeri is apparently extirpated in British Columbia. It is widespread, relatively common, and variable. The significance of infraspecific taxa named by H. M. Hall (1928) is largely unexplored.

Ericameria bloomeri

provided by wikipedia EN

Ericameria bloomeri is a species of flowering shrubs in the daisy family known by the common names Bloomer's rabbitbush and Bloomer's goldenbush. This plant is native to the mountains of western North America from British Columbia to California,[4] including Washington, Oregon, Idaho, and Nevada.[5] Some sources say it has probably been extirpated from Canada.[6]

Ericameria bloomeri grows in coniferous forests. This is a small shrub reaching a maximum height of about 50 centimeters (20 inches) and covered in a foliage of threadlike to slightly oval leaves a few centimeters long. It may be glandular and resinous and slightly woolly or hairless. Atop each of the many erect branches is an inflorescence of golden yellow flower heads. Each centimeter-wide head has up to 14 disc florets and sometimes up to 5 ray florets but sometimes none. The dense inflorescence has resin glands and some woolly fibers.[6]
