Bebbia, common name sweetbush, is a genus of aromatic shrubs in the daisy family. 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). It bears plentiful yellow discoid flowers.

Some authors combine the entire genus into one species, B. juncea. The Global Compositae Checklist and The Plant List 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
