Subspecies viscidula is the common silver sagebrush of the intermountain region of western North America. In New Mexico, it is known only from Rio Arriba County. It is distinguished from subsp. bolanderi by geography as well as its darker green foliage and sparsely (rather than densely) tomentose or glabrous stems. Usually restricted to wet meadows and stream banks, it is distinctive in the late summer and fall by its yellowing ephemeral leaves.
