Beautiful Intruder: Sweet Resinbush (Euryops subcarnosus) — Images by kenne

During a recent nature walk, I was eager to photograph this beautiful plant before learning that it is an “unwanted” intruder in Sabino Canyon and we would soon be pulling it up.

The plant, sweet resinbush, was brought here from South Africa in the 1930’s with the good intentions of providing forage for livestock and aid in slowing soil erosion. But, like a lot of good intentions, it proved to be more harmful than good — encroaching into healthy grasslands and choking out native vegetation.

Good intentions never change anything. They only become a deeper and deeper rut.
