California brittlebush (Encelia californica) is a must for low-water habitat gardens. This vigorous and dependable subshrub shows off its exuberant mass of large daisy-like flowers in spring and fall. Its long, bountiful bloom periods, combined with its food offerings of both pollen and nectar, make Encelia highly attractive to native bees and other pollinators. Pollinating insects are then food for birds and other critters.
“Noted” items are particularly good finds from my daily reading which I share via all my social media accounts.
