California Bush Sunflower (Encelia californica)

Our first bush sunflower blossom opened this weekend. This is an extremely easy plant to grow in California. Almost too easy as you can see from the volunteers in the dry stacked rock wall. By the time this flower fades in a week or two 25 -30 more will have taken it's place. This usually continues till early summer.

Its nice too see it but honestly it seems too early. We are keeping our fingers crossed for more rain and some more cool weather.

  1. Yes, we have fruit trees that seem to be blossoming much too early as well.
