Brittle Bush (Encilia farinosa)
This Arizona native mounding shrub prefers well drained, sandy or gravelly soil. Brittle Bush (Encilia farinosa) will survive with minimal water but will reach optimum growth and bloom with regular watering in well drained soil. Brittle Bush will not survive well in wet, heavy soil and prefer to be planted in full sun and in native soil that provides good drainage.
Excellent for use in native desert landscapes, rock covered yards and as a contrast in sub-tropical settings.
Fast growing small to medium mounding shrub
Bright yellow daisy-like flowers in spring
Extremely drought tolerant
True Arizona desert native
