Vernacular names
English: sweetbush

Bebbia, common name sweetbush, is a genus of aromatic shrubs in the daisy family.[1][2]

It is native to the southwestern United States (California, Nevada, Arizona, southwestern Utah, southwestern New Mexico, and extreme western Texas (El Paso County)) and northern Mexico (Sonora, Baja California, Baja California Sur).[3] It bears plentiful yellow discoid flowers.[4][5]


Some authors combine the entire genus into one species, B. juncea.[6] The Global Compositae Checklist [7] and The Plant List[8] accept two species, with B. juncea divided into two varieties:

Bebbia atriplicifolia (A.Gray) Greene - Baja California Sur
Bebbia juncea (Benth.) Greene
Bebbia juncea var. juncea
Bebbia juncea var. aspera (Benth.) Greene
