Plant Spotlight: Brittlebush

This fast growing desert native is a favorite among gardeners in the Morongo Basin and it is easy to see why. Brittlebush's (Encelia farinosa) grey leaves offset its profusion of yellow daisy-like flowers in a mounding habit. It has a long bloom cycle if given enough water. But not too much water as it is a true desert native and is used to an arid environment.

Brittlebush pairs well with other desert or California natives, such as cactus or the purple flowers of Cleveland sage.
