Encelia farinosa (Brittlebush)


This fast-growing, mounding shrub occurs in sandy and gravelly soils in the southwestern U.S. and Mexico. Large gray leaves contrast with the bright yellow daisy-like flowers produced in the spring. Excess watering will produce large, short-lived plants. Plant in full sun and reflected heat and provide good drainage.
