I have always wanted to discover a great new cultivar. And I am always on the lookout. A few months ago I was hiking with my buddy Mike in Griffith Park, and along the roadside I found a variegated stem of Encelia california. It had to ride around in a water bottle for a while, but I took good care of it. To my delight the precious cutting struck and I have grown it up to the 2 gallon size. I have high hopes. I think the yellow variegation and yellow flowers should make it a winner.
