Encelia farinosa

Brittlebush or Incienso

Brittlebush or Incienso is a compact drylander to 3 ft. high and 4 ft. wide. Gray-green to white foliage feels like flannel. The flowers are brilliant yellow daisies borne well above the foliage in early spring. After flowering, cut back and water for repeat bloom. Older plants develop strong character and produce resin which the early Spanish padres used for incense. Not hardy in cold desert areas. Sow in spring. Zones 5-9.
