Rough Sweetbush (Bebbia juncea var. aspera)

Description

Plants are growing on mountain side that was heavily burned in the Snow Creek fire that started September 17, 2020 and consumed 6,254 acres.

Sweetbush (Bebbia juncea) A.k.a. Rush Bebbia, Chuckawalla's Delight (the flowers are delicacies to this desert lizard). Sweetbush is a native, common, aromatic, rounded, many-branched shrub in the Asteraceae family that grows on dry, rocky slopes, desert plains, and in sandy, gravely washes. The multitude of thin stems form a dense, almost spherical shrub about 1m (3ft) tall and wide. Narrow stems have short, stiff hairs that feel like sandpaper. The yellow flower heads are discoid (lacking rays). Bebbia juncea ssp. aspera has narrow, linear phyllaries with an acute to acuminate (tapering to a point) tip. The following 4 references only list this plant with the ssp. (subspecies) aspera.
