Wildflowers of Southern Arizona
Aster (Asteraceae) family.
The flowers are in dense terminal clusters. The individual flower heads are 3/8 inch (10 mm) wide and have variable numbers of disk and ray flowers. The leaves densely line the branches and are dark green, resinous, narrowly linear, and 3/4 inch (1.9 cm) long.
Turpentine Bush is a low, rather inconspicuous, dark green shrub for much of the year, but when blooming, it becomes a brilliant blaze of yellow that's impossible to miss.
