[Wikipedia] Rarity: Ericameria gilmanii is a rare North American species of flowering plants in the family Asteraceae known by the common names Gilman's ericameria,[3] Gilman's goldenbush,[4] Gilman goldenweed,[1] and whiteflower goldenbush.[5] It is endemic to California, where it has been found in and east of the southern Sierra Nevada, in Inyo County and on Owens Peak in northeastern Kern County.[6] It is a poorly known plant. There are six known populations, but only one has been observed in the last 20 years.[1] Updating as of 2023, several observations of at least two populations have been observed since 2011.
