Is there a difference (botanical name) between the dwarf and the giant rabbit brush?

Hello,

The two most common types of rabbitbrush in Wyoming are gray rabbitbrush, Ericameria nauseosa, and Douglas rabbitbrush, Chrysothamnus viscidiflorus. Gray rabbitbrush is also called rubber rabbitbrush and Douglas rabbitbrush is sometimes called green rabbitbrush. Here is some more information if you are interested:
