Encelia is a genus of the plant family Asteraceae. It consists of
shrubs (and one geophyte) of arid environments in southwestern
North America and western South America. All have n = 18
chromosomes. With the exception of the South American species, all
are obligate outcrossers. In cultivation, the species readily form
fertile F1 hybrids, F2s, and backcrosses, but in natural areas of
sympatry, F2s and backcrosses are absent or rare. Encelia species
are used as food plants by the larvae of some Lepidoptera species
including the leaf-miner Bucculatrix enceliae which feeds
exclusively on Encelia farinosa.
